“Opening-Up Anxiety” is about how we deal with change. If you are uneasy about restrictions being eased after many months of isolation, you’re not alone.

A person with health anxiety will often misinterpret non-serious physical symptoms and attribute them to something more serious especially during a pandemic. Some symptoms produced by anxiety can include muscle pain, chest pain, heart rate changes, headaches, and dizziness. This can heighten existing anxiety.
