Dr. Bea joins 3News digital anchor Stephanie Haney on the 3 Things to Know podcast to discuss ways to cope with reentry anxiety
CLEVELAND — As more people get vaccinated against COVID-19 and restrictions ease across the country, Americans are dealing with reentry anxiety over getting back out in their communities, in a variety of ways.
Cleveland Clinic psychologist Dr. Scott Bea stops by the 3 Things to Know with Stephanie Haney podcast to discuss several types of “reentry anxiety” that people may be feeling as the world slowly starts to reopen: post-isolation anxiety likened to returning to the world after prison, closeness and crowd anxiety, concerns related to returning to the office, and body image issues.
Dr. Bea shares general ways to cope with these types of anxiety, as well as tips specific to each type of concern, and I break down science-based exercises for easing back into social interaction, courtesy of The New York Times.
Plus, I explain why Talkspace is a great tool that people Need to Know in NEO, and the many reasons that artist and illustrator Hannah Daisy is A Good Follow on Instagram.
