"There’s no reason to worry about me. Like I said in that conversation with @Michele__Norris, I’m thinking about the folks out there risking themselves for the rest of us—the doctors and nurses and essential workers of all kinds.

Michelle went on to write: "The idea that what this country is going through shouldn’t have any effect on us—that we all should just feel OK all the time—that just doesn’t feel real to me.

Michelle and Barack have enjoyed spending lockdown together

"So I hope you all are allowing yourselves to feel whatever it is you’re feeling.

"I hope you’re listening to yourselves and taking a moment to reflect on everything that’s coming at us, and what you might be able to do about it. And to all of you who’ve reached out—thank you.

"I hope you’re also reaching out to all those you’re closest with, not just with a text, but maybe with a call or a video chat. Don’t be afraid to offer them a shoulder to lean on, or to ask for one yourself. Love you all."

Michelle launched her podcast in July, and her first guest was husband Barack. The pair spoke about everything from their childhoods to the importance of voting in the election, as well as how their time together in lockdown had made them closer than ever.

There is also a games room in the home, an outdoor Jacuzzi, basketball pitch and a private beachfront and boathouse.
