Fear of COVID—Smash!
Having or having a loved-one have COVID: Smash!
Suffering financially because of the COVID economic shutdown: Smash!
Being forced into lockdown for months, with it likely to continue, if only intermittently. Of course, that can bring such sequelae as weight gain, domestic violence, kids not getting much of an education, and loneliness from lack of human contact: Smash!
Racial roiling in the aftermath of the Floyd killing: Smash!

Might any of the ideas I offer in my Psychology Today article today help you shelter from the storm?
