Sometime ago, I read a quotation from the well-known author Brian Treacy that said, “Stress comes from within: It is your reaction to the circumstances, not the circumstances themselves”.
One could argue that we should heed Brian’s advice. However, when you consider how difficult life has been for many over the past couple of years, the reality is that many people experience varying levels of anxiety and for many different reasons.
Thankfully, we have had a greater sense of normality for some time now as people are back to business, mingling and socialising just like old times. Yet, I sense there is still a “hangover” of anxiety lingering for some people.
