Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Without a doubt, 2020 was one of the strangest and most challenging years of my life. I never thought I would see people hoarding toilet paper or hear the phase, ”Sorry, I was on mute,” dozens of times.
In March, I started working from home and tried to balance glitchy video software, helping my daughter with math, and taking master of business administration (MBA) classes in the evenings. Besides working from home and home schooling, our vacation plans were cancelled twice, and I missed my grandparents’ 65th wedding anniversary. All of this resulted in a stressful year, to say the least.
Any change brings a degree of stress and anxiety because of uncertainty about the future. Think about these events: changing jobs, moving to a new city, and having a baby. All of these changes involve a major life event — although hopefully for the better.
