30 Illustrations About Mental Health That Seem To Comfort Many By “Constant Bagel Therapy”
If you’re seeking some good old-fashioned light-hearted wit, look no further than Constant Bagel Therapy. (Disclaimer: this account has nothing to do with bagels and everything to do with wordplay.) The self-proclaimed ‘creative nit-wit’ (as told in the account bio) from Leicester City in the United Kingdom illustrates line drawings of comical puns and posts them regularly to over 400k of loyal followers on Instagram.
Simple yet sharp, the account’s minimalism is precisely what makes it so appealing. Constant Bagel Therapy has mastered the act of creatively bringing together our collective feelings and experiences on Instagram in a way that feels relatable, and where each post makes you feel okay about being exactly where you are right now.
The said illustrations explore topics such as anxiety, friendship, family, social interactions, and many more. Given that, we’ve collected some of the best one-paneled comics to bring a smile to your faces, so scroll down and let us know which of the oddly comforting drawings you loved the most and why.
With that being said, with these comics we'd like to remind you of a few things. Ask for help and support if you need it. It's okay to not feel okay: You don't have to struggle in silence. Go at your own pace, whatever that looks like for you. You can't pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself and have support for you too. You can be kind and still set healthy boundaries. Even when you're struggling: You are worthy. You are loved. You are Enough.
We all have mental health and it affects how we think, feel, act. It also helps determine how we cope and handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. When someone is struggling with their mental health, don't try to fix it. Be there and provide a safe and non-judgmental space—should they need it. We hope these minimal illustrations can help you or someone you love feel better.
