More Stressed Than Ever

Recommended Posts

New research finds adults in the United States are feeling their highest levels of stress since the pandemic began last year. Experts say the majority of the nation is experiencing collective trauma at this point.

“Nobody is immune to the stress that’s happening right now, different people are experiencing different levels of stress overall,” said C. Vaile Wright, PhD, APA’s senior director of health care innovation. “We just weren’t built to maintain this level of stress and hypervigilance and hyperarousal for this length of time.”

We all know that stress can negatively impact our immune system, cardiovascular health, and worsen the experience of chronic pain and other medical conditions. So what is the best thing to do to manage stress?

I'm homeschooled, so my year wasn't interrupted. I was in school throughout most of 2020.
