Let's Talk About... Control

By Jeremy Godwin

The topic of ‘control’ might seem like an odd one to talk about in 2020, which at times has felt so out of control that it’s just not funny, but this is quite possibly the best time to reset our thinking about what we can control and what we cannot. This week’s episode is the second in a series of four exploring the foundations of good mental health; in this episode, I’m talking about what control is and why we crave it, the impact that effectively managing your need for control can have on your overall wellbeing, and how to manage the need for control on a day-to-day basis in order to improve your mental health. Let's Talk About Mental Health is a weekly podcast full of simple ideas for better mental health by Jeremy Godwin that draws on quality research as well as personal experience.
