Add in less sunlight and a colder climate, and this winter might be rough for many workers. According to the CDC, in the second quarter of 2020, “the prevalence of symptoms of anxiety disorder was approximately three times those reported in the second quarter of 2019 (25.5% versus 8.1%), and prevalence of depressive disorder was approximately four times that reported in the second quarter of 2019.” Additionally, roughly 5% of people deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder, or seasonal depression.

      Job applications are rough. You can spend hours just finding the right jobs to apply for, and then it takes even more time to fill out each job application.
