Episode #2 - Covid-19 Weight gain and body image

February 5, 2021

Angela Kumah leads an interesting discussion exploring issues around body image and the impact of the Covid 19 quarantine and weight gain with guests Natalie Graham, BBC radio presenter and manager of artist Jackie Graham & Rebecca Hemmings, Director of Time To Glow Up.

Covid 19 quarantine and social distancing policies have resulted in everyone living in a world where many of us are separated from our friends, family, and many of our usual support systems. This can lead to an increase in anxiety and wellbeing issues.

The key areas of concern in terms of resilience are:

The Covid 19 Virus
The 2020 Lockdown period/social distancing
Health inequalities for BME communities and systemic racism against the Black community
The recession
