Fighting the Covid Christmas blues

Jo Maughan asks what you can do to nurture your mental health to survive, even thrive, this December

I’m sitting at my red, shiny-topped desk feeling fed up. I look at the bright postcard of the blue and yellow tiled villa in Barcelona next to my screen. No change. I go downstairs and make myself a proper coffee – black, americano. I sit on my grey sofa to drink it. No change. I go upstairs to print out my seven page report to review, and start to read it from the sofa. No change. I still feel glum, fed up and frustrated with Covid-19. You? Many of my coaching clients are feeling variously lonely, depressed, frustrated, sad and despondent, even though Christmas is coming.
