What the pandemic has done to our memories

Just as people are affected differently by stress, individuals also vary in how they cope, said psychologist Alison Holman, Ph.D., a stress researcher and professor [of nursing] at the University of California, Irvine. “We should never think that you can throw all human beings into one bucket and say that’s how they’re going to cope, because there is no such thing as a single way for everybody to cope,” she said. … If you’ve just been living in the moment, it’s important to start looking ahead again, Holman said.
