Everyone responds differently. A specific set of people might find it particularly challenging to come out of lockdown. Those with psychological problems that cause anxiety while outside the house or engaging with others have experienced less social stress during the lockdown.
People with social anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or individuals on the autism spectrum fall under this category. Compared to the general population, these people experienced increased loneliness and other worries during the lockdown.
Others may be suffering their first bouts of severe anxiety or despair, or they may be terrified of catching COVID or the consequences of the virus. As you transition out of lockdown, there are a variety of tactics you can employ to assist you in managing anxiety and concern.
