Hannah Daisy #BoringSelfCare Drawings Celebrate Mundane Acts Of Self-care As Victories

When you’re living with an illness or disability, small acts of self-care like grocery shopping and washing your clothes can be challenging. But they can also leave you feeling more healthy and at peace, which is why it’s so important to celebrate the little victories. That’s the aim of occupational therapist Hannah Daisy’s “#BoringSelfCare” illustration series.
Daisy’s Instagram @makedaisychains features drawings of laundry, medications, and other day-to-day items people use to look after themselves. As a survivor of mental illness and endometriosis herself, she wanted to make it clear to her followers that you don’t need to use rose-scented exfoliant or massage oil candles to engage in self-care.
‘I hope people realize that doing boring tasks are just as valid forms of self-care as any other activity. But also I wanted to shine a light on how when you’re unwell, the tasks most people take for granted are actually some of the hardest things to do’.
