Dealing with the anxiety of leaving lockdown
Firstly, it is important to understand why this lockdown has had so many of us feeling more anxious than the last. In March 2020, we entered into the first national lockdown as Spring blossomed outside. The sun was shining, the weather was warm, and we had little idea of what was yet to come. Many of us found ourselves investing newfound time into hobbies, crafts, and exercise. However, the past three months will have kept many of us separated from family and friends at a time of year when we would have usually been together celebrating the festive season and welcoming in the New Year.
