    How do you look after your mental health during lockdown? Do you take a daily walk? Look after yourself by eating well? Or perhaps you practice mindfulness? We’re keen to hear about your experiences!

      It’s very difficult during lockdown if you already suffer from anxiety and depression, but I try very hard to make myself stay active.  Sometimes it’s more difficult than others.  I have numerous hobbies and tell myself it’s a good day if I do at least one of them.  Mostly making jewellery at the moment.  I have two dogs and find taking them for their walks really helps me, fresh air is definitely good.

      today so far is a very good day.  I felt down when I first got up, but took myself out with the dogs and took off my mask when we got to their favourite fields.  Other dog walkers are always friendly and I had 3 socially distanced chats.  It has buoyed me up and I’m now getting my blog up to date with my latest jewellery experiments.

      Your day sounds good so far, Inky Ess.  Glad you are feeling better than when you got up this morning.

      I’ve basically stopped pressuring myself to be other than who i am. I no longer suffer fools gladly. I avoid people who dampen my spirits. I am done with drama – am trying to fully embrace this pleasantly quieter time of life having had a relationship fail in part due to Covid.

      Am Luvvin life at the mo. Long may it last
