Weirdly I found COVID kind of helpful for my stress and anxiety. It gave me an excuse to slow things down a bit, stay at home more, rest and recuperate a bit etc. I found I needed the time off, and COVID gave me justification to take it. I know it hasn't been beneficial to everybody of course (I have a job that can be done from home, and savings to live off for a bit too), but for me at least there definitely was a silver lining.
This is a rather twofold situation. I started to feel better - psychologically, my income started to increase because I found a job that I can do from home, but now I almost can't travel. Because many countries are closed and there is a fear of getting sick.
