The American Psychological Association’s “Stress in America” survey, conducted by the Harris Poll, found that 32 percent of adults are so stressed by the pandemic, they sometimes wrestle with daily tasks, such as choosing what to eat or what to wear. “Our bodies don’t differentiate where the stress is coming from. They just know we’re stressed. So when that level of uncertainty starts to overwhelm our coping mechanisms, even the smallest tasks can start to feel overwhelming,” said Vaile Wright, a clinical psychologist and the senior director of health care innovation at the American Psychological Association.

Sometimes when you’re feeling stuck, the best thing to do is consult with a tattoo artist. After all, they are the professionals and they weigh in on things like this all day long.
