What is self-care and why is it so important?
Hi, my name is Agnes and I’m an artist and author living in France.
Do you also find it difficult sometimes to make sense of the whirl of emotions in your head? I do.
Or do you feel anxious, wishing you could better cope with the stress of daily life? I know I do.
Self-care means taking care of ourselves, so that we can be healthy, physically and emotionally.
And for me, art brings me a sense of peace and calm. Expressing my feelings and emotions through doodles helps to center me, which brings things into perspective. And voila, that’s part of self-care.
It’s similar to the clarity I get through journaling, but it lights me up when I look over my past doodles and see the progress I’ve made.
And you don’t need to be an artist. Doodles can be messy, lines going up and down all over the page. Kind of like, life’s ups and downs? So I love combing art with self-care.
Would you like to give this a try? If so, I’ve created this course of “10 Days of Self-care Doodling” to get you started. Self-care is not being selfish. It’s taking care of our well-being. And it’s well worth the time. Look, I have filled 3 books so far and I’m still continuing, I enjoy it so much. I hope you can join along.
Who this course is for:
- Self-care through doodling
I was born in France and now live in a little countryside village in Alsace, France.
I lived abroad most of my life, soaking up a variety of experiences and adventures around the world, which have enriched my life with culture, ethnicity, languages, and more.
My earliest memories as a child include drawing, especially portraits and flowers. As the years passed, my passion for art flourished and I have now illustrated many children’s books and taught art for kids since 1999. Today, art is still one of my joys.
Returning to live in Alsace in 2011, and being surrounded by its beauty and charm, amazing architecture, nature, and culture, has inspired me to express it through my art. I am reliving a small glimpse of what my grandfather experienced as he painted Alsatian villages and portraits. And through sketching, drawing, and coloring in my whimsical style, I am learning to depict some of the wonders of this beautiful place called Alsace.
More recently, I've been experimenting with Self-care and this has started me on an amazing journey as I explore incorporating my love for art and creativity with the need for physical and emotional well-being. I've experienced firsthand the results and rewards from paying attention to my health through self-care, and with a slower and more mindful way of living. That's why I've created some courses on this topic as well, realizing that all of us could do a little better with taking care of ourselves, so that we can have an even greater impact on others, and most of all feel a renewed sense of JOY and PEACE.
