COMIC: Self-Care In The New Year

The start of a new year often comes with lofty goals to overhaul our routine and implement new healthy habits – with health and self-improvement ranking at the top of the list. While there’s nothing wrong with working towards a goal, it’s also important to be realistic, take it slow and be gentle with yourself. This comic by Shapelessflame reminds us that it’s okay to keep it simple in our pursuit of health and wellbeing. 

January is often viewed as a time to focus on a reset.


It’s ok to keep it simple. You don’t have to do everything!


Try going for a walk, even if you have to bundle up a bit.


Remember: Building small, manageable habits will help maintain consistency will into the new year!
