Thought for today:
‘Home is where you are appreciated, safe and protected, creative, and where you are loved – not where you are put in prison.’
— Nawal El Saadawi

The UK is back in lockdown, like the Covid virus, a mutated form of the lockdowns we have had already.
My concern is for the mental health of everyone affected by this.
Those living alone, the parents forced back to home-schooling, the business people, the employees and NHS staff.
To name just a few of the groups adversely affected.
It is easy to succumb to negative thinking, and enforced isolation is not good for us.
We are social beings to one degree or another, we generally thrive in the company of others.
My suggestion is to focus on what you can control, to substitute face-to-face contact with some form of digital contact, and to maintain some degree of hope if you can.
I start client work tomorrow, so if it would help to talk, privately and confidentially, please do make contact.
If I can’t help you (I cannot work professionally with friends), I know plenty of people who can.
