    The Truth about Covid-19 Social Anxiety

    The Truth about Covid-19 Social Anxiety

    We’ve been challenged like never before in being alone or with the same people every day. But, we need other people, to feel OK in everyday life, and to heal.
    During Covid-19, we may have become very self-reliant, and we may have shut down to some extent, at the same time as craving good contact and connection.
    It would be natural to be struggling and awkward with social contact now. It’s possible that some of us have developed social anxiety after being isolated from others for so long. As such, we may have a natural inclination to stay indoors.
    In this podcast, I'll talk about how you can understand this, and start to recover.

    Where are we now? Emerging from the Trauma of Covid-19 - Trauma Triggering & Emotional Impact on Comfort Eating

    Where are we now? Emerging from the Trauma of Covid-19 - Trauma Triggering & Emotional Impact on Comfort Eating

    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.

So helpful

I searched for a podcast that addressed the emotional side of binge eating and in the few episodes I’ve learned so much. The practical advice and exercises Shelly gives are easy to implement and practice. Her voice is soothing and calm and her kind words make me feel less alone with this struggle. Love listening in! Looking forward to the next episode. Thank you, Shelly.
