In a blink of the eye the world has changed – Covid 19 is a reality for all. There is no escaping the fact that the world we are in is as far removed from being a festival as I can imagine.  It seems inevitable that there will pain and hardship – I hope that some of this can be offset by a positive tsunami of humanity to each other.

This month we were always going to look at the topic of resilience.  This is not just a concept but as you will read and see, it is something that can be broken down into a skill. However, one of the key messages is that before trying to master the skill, you need to get some of the foundation stones right – these are things such as nutrition, sleep, exercise and relationships.   The first two topics were covered in the January and March editions, so it may be worth revisiting these too!  

I hope that wherever you are, that you are looking after yourselves, the ones you love, your friends, your colleagues and your communities and I hope that the content in this month’s edition of The Festival of Us is useful.

Stay well, stay safe, stay strong and stay together.
