Don’t we all want to look back and think ‘Man, I really nailed my life!’. With influencers, friends and celebrities flying left, right and centre on social media, there’s a fine line between feeling like you’ve achieved something and feeling like someone’s done it better. I’ve learnt the hard way that it’s very easy to get caught up in what someone else is doing and holding onto the feeling that they’re doing everything better. We spend our time comparing and criticising ourselves daily when we could push that negative energy into worrying about what you’re doing and how you can be the best YOU.

This isn't a business newsletter, nor an entrepreneurial one. But I'm just popping into your emails to remind you that it's ok to take some time off if you start feeling mentally unwell, just like with a cold. There is no shame in that.
The designer using fashion to raise mental health awareness George, 22, started experiencing panic attacks six years ago. At the time, he felt really alone and isolated, thinking that nobody else could be going through the same thing as he was. So, George started drawing sketches as a way of trying to understand his anxiety - and that’s when he thought about putting those designs on T-shirts. He then set up a clothing label to raise awareness of - and funds for - mental health, and he now collaborates with others suffering from conditions like depression and eating disorders, all with the hope of encouraging people to have open conversations about mental health.
