Conditions such as anxiety and depression can easily take hold during pandemic conditions . And set against the huge uncertainty created by Covid-19 - around jobs, the economic situation and personal relationships - it's little wonder many of us have friends who are struggling, or are struggling ourselves. So what can we do to better support each other as the pandemic plays out?
The winter months are always a little more stressful than the summer. In 2020, however, the colder season will likely pose an even greater threat than ever before. We've all spent more time indoors throughout the year than ever before. Likewise, all of our lives are burdened by uncertainty in our health, careers, and ability to spend time with loves ones. Maintaining a healthy mindset should be a priority for everyone, and keeping stress levels down is a key factor.
