Not quite a Friday… but I am here to share with you TESS’ Top Tips to surviving Lockdown 2.0 after my 10th week at TESS. We all need to look after our mental health, especially with the gloomy evenings, not being able to get out and keep yourself busy is hard!! I am extremely lucky to still be working in the office for the majority of my week, that little bit of interaction with my work colleagues is vital and sticking to a routine is what is keeping me sane!


If you would like to learn more about how to look after your own mental health, understanding how other people go through it and spread awareness of how to deal with it, then get into contact with us to get enrolled on our FREE mental health awareness course.
