Ep. 132: Eoin Walker — How to Love Yourself By Managing Stress and Doing Less

Think Act Be Podcast

My guest this week is paramedic and podcast host Eoin Walker. I really loved this conversation. Eoin has an incredible amount of wisdom to share from both his professional and his personal experience, especially around managing stress and taking care of ourselves. We talked about ways to care for our bodies, minds, and spirits, especially through times of high stress, like many of us are experiencing now. I got so much from this discussion, and I think you will, too.

As the NHS continues to brace itself for the impact of coronavirus on both its resources and staff, we welcome Matt Walton, Junior Doctor, Filmmaker and WEM Conference Speaker, to discuss the psychological impacts of being on the frontline during this pandemic - the good, the bad and the harsh realities.  Alongside WEM Trauma Lead Eoin Walker, they discuss the unprecedented changes and the effects this is having on day-to-day practise - from wearing PPE on shift, to the challenges of de-briefing in time-pressured situations and the changing nature of triage and treatment. In addition to this, they consider the impact that the increased demand is having on individual and team morale, as the harsh reality hits that colleagues and friends will likely be affected by this virus. Matt counters this with the positives - considering the moments of incredible teamwork and learning, the shared grit and the inspirational courage shown by healthcare staff on a daily basis.
