Licensed Psychologist Dr. Amanda Sellers stopped by Saturday morning to talk about the mental toll new coronavirus restrictions and the holidays take on many people. 

"When coronavirus first hit people were very nervous. Then when the summer came people could do more outside. They were less nervous, a little less depressed," Sellers says. "There was more activity, and now with this latest lockdown people are really hitting a wall. They are struggling."

  • Seasonal changes
  • Holiday demands 
  • COVID fatigue
  • Another lockdown 

To combat these stressors, Dr. Sellers listed her 'stress busters":
