According to the CDC, the national rate of anxiety tripled in the second quarter due to the pandemic and depression almost quadrupled. Negative emotions, like anxiety and depression, aren’t just feelings but often primal indicators of excessive, ongoing and unmanaged stress. Threats to survival, like pandemics, are instinctive triggers of spikes in stress hormones.
