Mr H, being a communicator by trade, is always reading books about human behaviour. He recently read out this sentence to me from a book by Jonathan Haidt called The Righteous Mind (the fun we have in our house!): “We are deeply intuitive creatures whose gut feelings drive our strategic reasoning.” It really connected with me because, as someone who has struggled with my mental health all my life, I know how true this is. On any day, my feelings…

In fact, you’re more likely to find that you feel down more than you do good. Because the world can be an incredibly pressurized place. It’s easier than ever to be hard on yourself, and this is when things like depression can…
