End of financial year is upon us (oh joy), and we bet you can’t wait to get stuck into your taxes.

Hard times bring out the best and worst in humankind. As lockdowns grip the majority of Australia and New Zealand, civil unrest erupts in Afghanistan, and wild weather rips through Turkey and other parts of the EU – so many of us are feeling down in the dumps. And when you’re in a negative head space, that can seep through to every conversation and interaction you have with others.
