Taking to the social media site, Joe said: ‘I wanted to talk a bit about mental health, today for the first time through this whole thing I’ve found things quite difficult.

Opening up about his emotions, he said: ‘I’ve been down and stressed and frustrated with being indoors, I went out with Indie for an hour and I got my energy and I feel calm but then you come back indoors into your living room and it just shrinks again.’

Admitting that he doesn’t consider himself to be mentally stronger than anyone else, he said: ‘Indie’s been playing up and she’s a bit confused by it all, I want to talk about how just because I love my fitness I’m not invincible or superhuman.’

Joe went on to reveal that he had a ‘rough start’ to the day, after having a bad dream and suffering from sleep paralysis where he felt unable to wake up.   

He also added that his children aren’t coping well, and said: ‘Indie is getting really upset and jealous every time I go near Marley or Rose, she’s like “daddy, daddy, daddy!”

Joe continued by revealing that he attempted to combat his negative mood with a work out, and said: ‘So I was feeling pretty low but I’ve just got up and did a work out.

‘Obviously because of this [pointed to his broken wrist] I can’t do what I think of as a proper work out, but I’ve done a power walk and some squats and I’m feeling much better. 

He added: ‘So if you’re feeling low, anxious or depressed it’s completely normal and everyone is feeling it on some level. With kids it heightens it, there’s screaming and crying and it is intense.

‘But after exercise I instantly feel better. You can change your mental state by changing your physiological state. Those mental lows suddenly just fade away.

‘90% of the time I am really happy but sometimes, 10% of the time I wake up feeling discontent.

‘I just wanted to share that if you are feeling stressed… it can be hard mentally. It’s hard to be a great dad, cooking, cleaning, changing nappies and doing these lives. It’s hard.’

After initially feeling down at the start of the day, Joe’s spirits lifted after he enjoyed a work out and shared a sweet video with his two children.

Marley was wrapped up in a onesie as his father rocked him around, one of his arms still in a plaster cast from his recent bike accident.

Joe was spotted leaving his home where he has been self-isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic, to go to hospital to have the cast changed on his arm the evening before. 

He had been wearing his arm in a bandage following an operation on the break last week in which a wire was put in, and he said he would continue teaching PE, but wouldn’t do any push-ups. 

He said at the time: ‘I was out on my bike last Saturday, I fractured a bone in my hand.

‘It’s okay, I just can’t do any push-ups or press-ups or burpees but I’m sure you’ll be happy about that because it means no burpees for you. I’ll be here for as long as you need me.’
