“Never judge a book by its cover”
You never really know what is going on, from the outside. We are all masters of smiling, gritting our teeth, putting on a smile, stiff upper lip and carry on regardless….how many cliches??
But the truth really is that you don’t know what is going on in someones world unless you are them.
I am happy to admit this year has been one of the toughest yet for our family with many curve balls thrown into the mix we have had to duck or deal with. Redundancy, pandemic, illness, family trauma to name a few and yet we have had amazing support, love and care which has brought us through (almost!)
Yoga and fitness has become one of the pillars of support for me personally and my amazing clients showing up, on Zoom, moving with me, week after week, month after month, has provided me with a HUGE source of stability and strength.
We have all become so good at (and yet is makes me so sad) being a generation of smiles and happy lives outwardly and yet suffering in our own way inwardly.
I encourage you all, and especially this year, and this time of year, to ask for help, call a friend, go for a walk. Maybe not just for the person you are thinking of right now, but also for you. We all have mental health, the same way we have physical health, so check it and make sure you are checking others too.
I am always listening, hearing and here for you xxx
