How can you handle pandemic anxieties as restrictions ease?

Sunday, 16 May

Life in lockdown has triggered many anxieties so, as restrictions ease, how can you emerge with a healthier mind and body?

Renee McGregor helps anxiety sufferers on a daily basis, specialising in sports and eating disorders, and has worked with Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth teams.

In this episode she tells Kylie Pentelow why a change to the way people think can alter their feelings and behaviours and present a more honest view of themselves to the world rather than what's projected by so many on social media.

Plus, she explains how her own adversities helped her deal with pandemic pressures and offers practical advice for those anxious about going back to the pub or meeting friends indoors.
