Mindfulness takes a lot of mental energy to wrap your brain around. Gudetama is here to help you become a better person . . . sort of.
Empathizing with others, understanding your feelings, learning to be selfless. These all sound like really hard things to do! Well fear not, come along with Gudetama who’ll guide your way to learning things and more. Living selflessly is something many struggle with. Don’t worry, Gudetama does too, and wants to join you on your journey in finding the wonders of mindfulness.

If the chance to read a comic inspired by the worldwide hit Sanrio character—and animated star—presents itself, don’t overthink the answer, just say: Gudetama? Yes, please!

The cutest, laziest egg ever is ready to teach you how to be more mindful, empathize with others, and learn to be selfless. How many struggle every day and feel overwhelmed? This comic shows real life situations and offers you guidance on how to face them to reach a healthy state of mind and, in the process, be a better person. How? For instance, it’s important to listen to others—but also yourself—and understand their feelings. Be yourself, live in the present, and treat others like you wanna be treated. Indeed, through colourful and humorous sequences, you actually learn important lessons and useful things you can do to alleviate your anxiety. Don’t we all need that?

A recommended read that puts a smile on your face while giving you some strong, good advice. The struggle is real, but the journey to find mindfulness is quite enjoyable with Gudetama!
