Yahoo News reports: “Three-quarters of respondents shared that they’re worried about a surge in COVID-19 cases and seven in 10 are worried about another shelter-in-place order within their state this winter. With all of these trials and tribulations, 67% of respondents are worried the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will take a toll on their holiday cheer. It’s no surprise then that nearly three-quarters of respondents shared they’re planning to take better care of their mental health this winter.”
“A further 36% cited political instability and the upcoming presidential election (33%) as frequent contributors to their stress levels.”
