September Zines of the Month
2020 is whipping by quickly, and it's a year we'll never forget! Among the hardship experienced, here's hoping that any need re-evaluate has also bought a few possibilities scattered among the upheaval.
In the zine world, Many zine events have gone virtual this year. And there are more zinesters (zine-makers) than ever, using zines as a creative outlet or as helpful resources to support themselves or communities.
The accessibility of zines makes them excellent mental health resources (we might be biased here!). Just flipping through the illustrated pages of a perzine (personal zine), for example, might help one feel a little less alone in their own struggles.
Our September zine picks are all about trying out new ways to show ourselves more kindness. So take a moment to pause and try out a self care idea from one of these great zines.
Become Worry Free Right Now by School of Life Design
Suppose you like the idea of starting a meditation practice for wellbeing but dread the thought of meditating. In that case, this zine is a great solution. It brings meditation to a written format, which I love! Breathing exercises are nestled among the calming text. As you read each meditation, you'll feel more at peace with where you are in the world right now.
