Like many of us, Josh Cuthbert has found lockdown a battle at times.
"I have previously tackled some mental health issues of mine for quite some time now," says the former Union J singer. "Lockdown has almost felt like I have taken two steps back again."
Many people have experienced mental health struggles over a frequently overwhelming period: "good days and bad days", as Cuthbert says.
Don't be afraid to seek support and speak to friends or family – even if those conversations take place remotely.
"I want people to know they’re not alone with feeling like this," Cuthbert says. "We are all in this together."
And together, we'll all come out the other side.
What upcoming project(s) are you most excited about?
I have a few things in the pipeline that I am excited about, quite a few of them have been put on hold due to Covid-19, but nonetheless some exciting projects.
I was announced as the UK men’s Givenchy ambassador for 2020 and have some really exciting stuff planned with them, trips, events and product launches.
I am also working on my health and fitness and sharing my home workouts with followers online.
What is your proudest professional accomplishment?
This is a tough one, but I would probably say reaching number 1 in the singles charts when I was in the band Union J.
I remember hearing Scott Mills on BBC’s Radio 1 announce it and then looking on iTunes and seeing our song at number 1 on there too was an incredible feeling.
I grew up wanting to one day have a song that does well in the charts, so it was literally a dream come true.
If you could change one thing about your career, what would it be?
Since leaving the band I was in, I haven’t continued to sing too much and that frustrates me a bit because singings my passion. However, I had some other things I wanted to explore and dedicate my time to.
I also think I would live in the moment more and live each day in the industry as if it was my last. I think I would have really appreciated every single moment more.
What do you hope to achieve that you haven’t yet?
I hope to one day own a successful business, I would love to do something unique in the fitness space and I’m also interested in one day having my own fashion line.
I would also like to explore more opportunities in the entertainment industry, there are some television shows I would love to do and challenge myself to do, they also help the public get to know me more.
