13 Self-Care Memes To Help You Breathe Easier

January is Mental Wellness Month.

January is Mental Wellness month and since it's also the first month of a brand new year, it's a great time to check-in with yourself and embark on a fresh start. Mental wellness has much more to do with maintaining your mental health than a mental illness diagnosis — the same way physical wellness has more to do with day-to-day health than disease. Your state of mental wellness is defined by how you feel, how you behave, and your relationship with life's circumstances.

Even though the new year does bring about an opportunity for a fresh start, it doesn't automatically erase the burdens of last year (or the years before that.) The things we carry in our hearts and minds can take a toll on us and it can be very difficult to feel well. Thanks to a surge in the mental wellness movement in the last few years, the practice of self-care has become more commonplace. It's important to take a mental break and spend some "me-time" figuring out what's going on in your life, exploring what's affecting your mood, and resting your mind from an anxious and demanding world. 

In honor of Mental Wellness month, Twitter users are hashtagging #selfcare with inspiring and helpful memes about taking care of our inner-selves. We compiled a list of some of our favorites. Read on and breathe easy.
