    4/5 :) “I like that napping is a form of self-care. I will continue to do so… silently… and without interruption... alone.” This book was literally meant for me! Gudetama and laziness? Yes please! The artwork was very cute and the mindfulness lessons were entertaining and educational. It's really cute but kind of feel like it's for a younger audience. While it’s educational, the lessons didn’t go as deep as I would've liked them to. Overall, a fast and cute read.

    * I received an eARC of this book via Netgalley. All opinions in this review are my own. This was a very cute comic! I loved the messages it passed on. This would be great for children and young adults that have a hard time understanding these concepts to grasp them early on in life. The art was very good, though I got overwhelmed by the sheer amount of panels on each page because they were all full color and rather detailed.

I love a well-detailed comic but this one took it a tad bit too far in comparison to all the other comics I've read over the years. My one other critique would be the font choice. In particular the letter 'U'. The font used reads like a 'LI'. I was jarred out of the stories various times to re-read a word that didn't make sense the first time around. Overall, it was a nice comic with a good message behind it!

    Are you looking for a fun and short comic series about being lazy and how to be mindful? Well, Gudetama: Mindfulness for the Lazy is a unique and comedic take all on mindfulness. I enjoyed this short read. It's comical, made me smile and can be quite beneficial in mindfulness education. The illustrations are also fabulous and colourful, which draws a lot of attention and makes the story more interesting. Reminder: random acts of kindness (especially small ones) can really make someone's day! Three Are you looking for a fun and short comic series about being lazy and how to be mindful?

    4.25 stars. Gudetama has always been my spiritual animal. I used to own a cute Gudetama squishy toy with its squishy li’l butt. In this short and cute graphic novel, along with our Gudetama, we learn about compassion, personal space, stress management and many more things in short scenarios. All the aspects of mindfulness are explained in simple terms while never making it boring. Adults may find this of little use but it’s good for tweens and teens. The artwork is also very cute and easy on the eye 4.25 stars. Gudetama has always been my spiritual animal. I used to own a cute Gudetama squishy toy with its squishy li’l butt.

    The Gudetama series keeps getting better and better! Despite being so short, I found this graphic novel to be quite entertaining. Gudetama is absolutely relatable and in this volume we see how they learn about being mindful, empathic and pretty much a kind being.

Gudetama is absolutely relatable and in this volume we see how they learn about being mindful, empathic and pretty much a kind being. There are some really good advices that everybody should follow because, let’s face it, the world is already a terrible place, but we can make it better. 2020 taught us that thinking of others before acting too reckless is a better option than dragging everybody into the mud. I may sound a bit cheesy but it’s surprising how small acts of kindness can do so much for our community and ultimately, for our mental health. I would totally recommend this to adults, but is also a great book for a younger audience since it has simple yet important topics to discuss.

    Love the idea behind this. Like the commentary. The comic art is okay. Wish the panels wasn't too cramped at times.

There is just something a lazy egg who loves naps that is so relatable! Gudetama: Mindfulness for the Lazy is absolutely a self-help sort of book, a how-to guide for mindfulness. This could have been super boring, but the artwork is colourful and engaging and there were intertwining storylines that made it much more enjoyable to read. Plus, when Wook-Jin Clark said ‘mindfulness for the lazy’, he meant it. There’s no big reveal or secret truth about mindfulness, nothing that requires more that a couple of seconds and some forethought to implement. All of these steps are simple and clear cut. This was an informative read in an enjoyable format, and I really recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn more about mindfulness, loves Gudetama, or is just looking for a fun read.

Often thes BLOG|INSTAGRAM|TWITTER|YOUTUBE Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed the bit in the work scene, because sometimes that's actually how it feels reading mindful self help things. As though they are not aware of office jobs and how they don't necessarily allow for mindful activity to relieve anxiety. I also appreciated the explanation of the difference between sympathy and empathy with the humor aspect. Often these words are mixed up in people's language, and sometimes being aware of the best way to use them is really helpful! "Sometimes words aren't enough. It's the act of showing up that makes a difference." The various ways mindfulness can be applied in different circumstances looks different for everyone. There is no right or wrong way, as long as it makes you feel better and helps others around you as well. Taking care of yourself is something that can, in turn, help the people around you. "I like that napping is a form of self-care. I will continue to do so...silently...and without interruption...alone." This book is a quick read and would be beneficial to young people, but also many adults. The concepts are manageable and tangible, without feeling too much like you're being overwhelmed with "shoulds." Gudetama incorporates humor and self-awareness that not everything will work for everyone and you can only take it one day at a time. I really enjoyed this and the art was true to the Gudetama style we know and love.

    This is really sweet, funny, and helpful! It's a simple (but not overly simplified) guide to mindfulness, including a number of things that I honestly didn't know were a part of mindfulness, like organization, empathy, forgiveness, not going off on people online, etc. I like the question-and-answer format, where characters ask for help from Gudetama (an adorable little egg yolk (I think??)), and I like how it's very non-judgemental about people potentially messing up on their mindfulness journey This is really sweet, funny, and helpful!

It left me feeling hopeful and uplifted, and like I can incorporate these things into my daily life. Although this is really cutesy, I honestly think it would be better for teen to adult audiences, because most of the scenarios are ones adults would find themselves in (picking a friend up at the airport, being overwhelmed at work, arguing with someone online, etc.). I would recommend this quick and cute read to pretty much everyone. Thanks to Netgalley and Oni Press for the ARC!

Growing up we're told not to be selfish and take other people's feelings into consideration during arguments but never told the correct way to deal with online discourse. Having a bright, simple and effective comic with advice on this could really change how a person interacts with social media after reading a few simple pages. "Don't be a butt!" (I loved it so much I'm going to purchase a copy to gift to my best friend on her birthday!)

    Lovely comic! I love Gudetama so I had to check this one out. A good introduction to mindfulness, though not in-depth (which I didn’t expect it to) but it covered the basics and just gave general, helpful tips and steps towards becoming more mindful. Super cute so I’d love to check out the other Gudetama comic about adulting! ARC kindly provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    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!

Gudetama is a reluctant participant at times - why practice mindfulness when you can nap, after all? But he warms up to the idea and even starts joining in with some of the teachings, too! This is probably aimed more at younger audiences - I think kids and young teens would especially find a lot to learn and appreciate here! Thanks to NetGalley for the early copy, I'll be scooping this up in a physical version when I can so I can revisit and share it!

    Look, sometimes you just need a comforting, adorable cartoon mascot and his friend to explain to you what mindfulness is, and how to achieve it. This is a short, cute comic that is a good introduction to the concepts of mindfulness and self-reflection. It doesn't go too in depth, but I didn't really expect it to; Gudetama just wants to explain what being mindful means, and the various ways you can be mindful to help alleviate stress and tension in every day life, and then take a nap afterwards.

    This is the first book that I have not liked in a while. It is about empathy and it does show different ways to be able to achieve it. But, I couldn't handle the illustrations. I did not like the main characters outfit. It was a stretchy over the head outfit that didn't fit the world around him. This is the first book that I have not liked in a while.

    Yes I know I rarely touch non-fiction books, but rarely do non-fiction books come with Gudetama’s butt slapped on them. AND even more rarely do they pop up covering mindfulness during what can only be described as a fart-stick doozy of a year. Here’s a handy checklist of why you might be interested in it: ☐ Dislike long, dull books telling you how to be nice to people and be kind to yourself ☐ Somewhat lazy when it comes to putting yourself first ☐ Like Gudetama ☐ Currently living/surviving through 2 Yes I know I rarely touch non-fiction books, but rarely do non-fiction books come with Gudetama’s butt slapped on them.

Here’s a handy checklist of why you might be interested in it: ☐ Dislike long, dull books telling you how to be nice to people and be kind to yourself ☐ Somewhat lazy when it comes to putting yourself first ☐ Like Gudetama ☐ Currently living/surviving through 2021 ☐ Fan of graphic novels/comics ☐ Have a small person nearby that you’d like to introduce the idea of mindfulness to Now let’s get one thing straight – this is a comic for ALL ages. It’s definitely written in a way which can be easily understood by those young little scamps, but I know a lot of so-called adults who could benefit from a wee book all about how not to be a dick. SO if you have a spare 20 mins or want to introduce the idea of mindfulness to kids in a way that won’t absolutely bamboozle them whilst looking at the adorable Gudetama character, then get this on your shelf. Given the way 2021 is already shaping up, I will be going back to it from time to time to remind myself to breathe.

Especially when that level of stress can in reality make you much less productive than you would have if you had just taken that time to reorientate and center yourself would have. Props though for the use of the singular they. I got butterflies reading it. It still feels incredibly rare so seeing it used here felt awesome.

It's clear that the author is a very good artist, but I feel like it would have benefitted from a little less being more. The commentary was nice and I feel like there was some good pieces of advice that the reader can take away about Mindfulness and apply it to their lives.

    I love Gudetama so I was already endeared to this concept, and as a social worker I'm always looking for age-appropriate ways to explain mindfulness and social emotional educational concepts. This book is exactly that. The illustrations are delightful and energetic and the text is compassionate and relevant to many of the dilemmas we all face day to day. I especially enjoyed the timeliness of the part about having a problematic relative who sends you articles you disagree with.

    Who wouldn't want to get mindful advices from a depressed egg? Gudetama is (already) a classic Sanrio character and this was a short, funny illustrated guide for mindfulness. If you don't like self-help books, this was an easy chunk. I quite liked the part about social media mindfulness and what to do, if a relative sends you all the time articles and videos you don't want to see. These are parts everyone should read. Thanks Netgalley for a copy. Who wouldn't want to get mindful advices from a depressed egg?

    * I received an ARC of this book on NetGalley * This was such a cute comic! I’m a fan of Gudetama and thought it was a fun read! Being older, this is a great reminder to be more mindful of those around you and simple ways to do so. For younger audiences, I think this is an excellent book to help them grasp these concepts and have a fun time while learning. I think Gudetama said it best, “Don’t be a butt.” I would recommend this to young readers!
