Who could have predicted that 2020 would have turned out the way it has.  If you are anything like me, I’m sure it has been a year of ups and downs and now more than ever self-care is essential.


Christmas is fast approaching and for some it is a joyous occasion but for others it is filled with dread.  In normal circumstances this time of year can increase anxiety levels and with the unwelcome layer of COVID those levels have grown dramatically.


Undoubtedly it is a worrying time in the world.  I’m writing this and reflecting back on 2020.  It has been a crazy year!


Now, I am no expert on mental health but what I would say is that if you know someone who is having a tough time, be kind, check in with him or her and ask them if they are okay.


Or, if you are feeling a little under the weather as you read this, please be kind to yourself and remember self-care is not a gift it is your entitlement.


Take care and hope to see you soon.
