Findings from a recent YouGov survey in Australia show that COVID-19 has caused a large amount of stress. The survey found that one in four Australian relationships are under strain, one in two people are feeling isolated and 57% are feeling stressed. Furthermore, 54% said restrictions due to COVID-19 were causing tension in their household. As a society, we’ve never experienced anything like COVID-19.
The Harvard Medical School said in its latest health guidelines that yoga, meditation and controlled breathing are "some tried and true ways to relax", reduce stress and tension.
