Today is World Mental Health Day, always super important, but even more so in this crazy year. These are some of the things that are part of my mental health/self care routine. It’s something that I, like so many others, always have to be aware of, especially during the autumn months. Know that there is help available and ask for it, if you need it. Take Care.💚💚

Another weekend stuck at home. I updated this one again with only things that are actually my quarantine favorites. Like playing online Scrabble, eating home made brownies for breakfast (sometimes!), too much pizza, plant babies everywhere and, of course, rosé wine. I hope you’re having a good weekend and staying safe! 💚
Here are some ways to support your favorite (local) small businesses, so that they’ll still be around by the time everything goes back to “normal”.
See if you can order online, if they deliver or have a take-out option. You can also buy a gift card to spend later. Let them know that you care! 💚
Artists like me are also small business owners and we need your support as well. Selling my cards in shops is one of my main sources of income. Since most shops are now closed, that means no new card orders. Luckily my Etsy shop is still open as usual and one of the easiest way to support me right now is to place a small (or big!) order. I’ve also installed a donations button on my home page.
Also, if you want to share an artist’s work online: always clearly credit and never edit, and if you’re a company: ask permission first. Thank you! Stay healthy and take care!
Self-care in times of Corona virus. This is an updated version of my autumn/winter self-care card, because the virus is forcing us to do certain things a little bit differently. (I’ve never washed my hands so often and also realised that I love touching my face!) This week I’ve been feeling quite worried and sad but I’m going to take my own illustrated advice and use the extra time inside for some quality ‘me-time’.
Take care! ♥♥♥♥
Take good care in 2020, of yourself and of those around you. Wishing everyone all the best for the new year ♥
I have this self care reminder card available on Etsy. It’s not so easy to always get all of the things on there right, I know this very well myself. But hopefully it can inspire you in some way, even if it’s just to do one good thing for yourself today. For me, it’s listening to Ben Howard on “eternal-shuffle-mode” at the moment.
