Overcoming Pandemic Re-entry Anxiety

It has been more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic turned our lives upside-down. We’ve missed out on family gatherings and dinners with friends. Attending concerts and sporting events have become a distant memory. And we’ve missed out on a host of milestone moments, including graduations and the births of grandbabies.

Now, the world is beginning to open back up. A year ago, this is what many of us spent our days dreaming about. Vaccines are rolling out and COVID-19 case numbers are declining. But for some of us, this transition back to “normalcy” is leading to feelings of anxiety, rather than excitement.
