We know that you have been bombarded with messages about the coronavirus, whether that be on television, social media, or in your community networks. In uncertain times like these, anxiety, stress, fear, and negative thoughts can easily take control. You may be worried about being in crowds, getting a vaccine for you and your loved ones, your office, your clients, your finances or how to manage whatever the future holds as we prepare to return to the ‘new normal’ in our personal and professional lives.
