COVID-19 has put stress on all aspects of peoples’ lives. One especially important, and often overlooked, aspect has been the effect on relationships.
Dealing with relationship stress properly is important because relationships have such a large impact on our well-being. Additionally, strong romantic relationships have been shown to correlate with both physical and mental health.
Unfortunately, stress and loneliness often create lower satisfaction with relationships. Times of hardship are when we benefit the most from strong relationships, but these times also put the most strain on our relationships. Managing the effects of this stress is key to a strong relationship!
In times when many are dealing with financial stress, homeschooling, childcare, and potential sickness, is your relationship a source of strength and stability, or another source of stress?
