Ep 510 How to Get Back Out There: A guide The Women's Podcast

    • Personal Journals

After more than a year working remotely, socialising on zoom and staring at the four walls of our own houses, the thought of getting back out into the world can seem a little daunting. While the reopening of society brings with it the chance to meet friends, eat out and reunite with loved ones, it can also bring a sense of uncertainty and social anxiety. For some of us, FOMO - the fear of missing out - has been replaced with FOJI - the fear of joining in. To discuss the difficulties, logistics and etiquette of getting back out there, Róisín Ingle is joined by Irish Times columnists Jennifer O’Connell and Laura Kennedy and Helen Vaughan, psychotherapist and owner of Maynooth Counselling.
