That’s the exact time when the worries of a new working week really start to hit us, according to research.

Two-thirds of people say they are feeling generally stressed due to lockdown, even as the restrictions ease, the study showed.

Top anxiety triggers include the thought of socialising in large groups, for 28 per cent, and heading back to the office, for 22 per cent.

And one of the biggest factors in driving anxiety and worry across the country has been the pressure to “return to normal” post-lockdown more quickly than many people feel comfortable with.

One in six admitted using alcohol to deal with their problems, while one in ten people use a health supplement.

Just six per cent admitted reaching out to a counselling service.

Dr Miriam Ferrer, of FutureYou Cambridge, which did the study, said: “Feelings of stress and anxiety are a part of day to day life, but for some it can be much more severe.

“It’s important if this is the case, people know where to get help such as helplines, charities or counselling services.”

Jacqueline Jossa says she is feeling stressed and is having a bad week
