THE WEEK BEFORE last, Public Health England warned of a second pandemic: the mental health crisis emerging among people coping with the pressure of life on lockdown. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who could relate. Some of us are lucky enough to be working from home, but that comes with its own pressures; navigating new work-life boundaries, feeling lonely and isolated, and for parents feeling overwhelmed by having to add home schooling to the list of daily tasks. Grazia helped launched Where’s Your Head At in May 2018, a national campaign to get workplaces to give parity to physical and mental health – and 214,000 of you signed a petition that made businesses and Government sit up and listen (and resulted in a change to the workplace Mental…

I thank you for bringing these women to the forefront and showing your readers a specific and true perspective, which to me was very different to the slightly faceless and ever-growing number of statistics that we’re given. Alis To follow a great piece about NHS staff with an item about a £900 tracksuit missed the mark. I know businesses need to be supported and people need to buy online to ensure shops stay open, but a tracksuit this costly was too much.

letter of the week

A TRIBUTE TO NHS HEROES The stories of the four amazing women NHS workers (6 April) allow us to see clearly the sacrifice they’re making, both physically and mentally, in doing their jobs. Covid-19 has no barriers or limits, and we rely on people such as Janitha, Rosena, Richenda and Sarah to treat our family, friends and neighbours. What struck me is how patients remain in their thoughts after their shifts have ended. We should all think twice before leaving our homes, unless we really have to, be it for exercise or groceries. We owe it to all the frontline NHS workers such as them. Thanks for such an excellent feature. Laura…

Domestic abuse victims need support now more than ever “Although this pandemic has exposed a caring side to humanity, for some, being told to ‘stay at home’ is the most frightening thing they could hear. Domestic abuse charities have already seen a spike in victims contacting them. Labour MP Jess Phillips had the brilliant idea of calling for hotel rooms to be made available for people who need to flee, and we were relieved to see Chancellor Rishi Sunak announce funding to domestic abuse charities last week. Now let’s do our bit and stay alert to signs that friends or neighbours might need our help. Call Refuge on 0808 2000 247, or visit womensaid.org.uk for their live chat service.”…

a confession – and a brand spanking new covid cliché

THIS IS REALLY EMBARRASSING. I never in a million years thought I’d end up saying – let alone, writing! – anything like this: but I guess it’s one of those situations where you never think it’ll happen to you until it does, and then, you’re like, oh. Right. I see. Here’s the thing: I think coronavirus is turning me into a nicer person. Seriously. I appear to be… softening. Becoming more gentle. Less ragingly cynical. I am moved to tears by: nurses dancing on YouTube, the Queen’s ‘we’ll meet again’, the billion stories of casual, everyday kindness the crisis just keeps throwing up. When I venture out into the world, I move through it with optimal grace, tracing 2m diameter arcs round all I encounter – people into whom I would once have irritably barrelled…

CELESTE STARRE’S EAR CUFFS Another way to intensify your virtual meeting game. TYPOLOGY SKINCARE Coming soon to the UK, Ordinary-type prices on active ingredients. I’ve tried it: it’s good. THE ZOOM LEAVE MEETING LAG You say bye, then reach in too close to press ‘leave’, and it takes forever and is terribly awks and that angle is not flattering. WOW’S ROOT COVER POWDER Not a new product but, increasingly, an utterly bloody essential one. LA GALERIA ELEFANTE DRESSES Beachwear is also the perfect summer home wear, IMHO. Aka ‘dayies’ (nighties for the day).…
