Firstly, I hope you’re OK. It’s normal if you’re not, and if that’s the case, talk to someone. For the last few weeks, most of us have been working harder than ever, as we come to terms with, and adapt to, the ever-changing challenges. Being busy is good for your mental health.

A less formal email from me today. As I type this, I have that song from Life of Brian, 'Always look on the bright side of life' on repeat in my brain. It is important to focus on the positives. For starters, no one of us (I hope) are currently nailed to a cross, which is something. While some businesses are doing it tough, there is some good news and I thought I'd remind you of it.
