Where are we now? Emerging from Covid 19 - the impact on our wellbeing
As we find ourselves recovering from COVID-19, we may still be coming to terms with the impact the virus has had, on both our bodies and minds. None of us has escaped its effects. When we first went into lockdown, many of us were anxious and felt lonely. Those first few weeks were all about calming our nervous systems down from fight or flight. We responded to a very real threat by going into survival mode. But where are we now?
In this podcast, I talk about how the pandemic may have affected our nervous systems, the effect of vicarious trauma, and the triggering you may have experienced.
Any of these experiences may lead to comfort eating, or using substances to regulate how we feel.
