As vaccinations increase and the sun starts to shine, the world is starting to look a little more welcoming. Despite these upsides, we still find ourselves living with pandemic-related stress and uncertainty. Whether you're burned out from Zoom meetings, exhausted from interacting with customers from behind masks, out of work or retired, working and living during the pandemic has presented new challenges for most of us.
