Firstly, I just want to apologise for the occasional skips within the recording, I've tried my best to edit around them.

In this episode of the MyoMinds podcast I speak with Kings College London research associate Una Foye about all things emotions and experiences.

In this conversation we touch on many topics, such as:

  • What emotional intelligence is
  • How understanding our emotions can impact our life
  • The importance of recognising the nuances of your own mental health experience
  • The difficulties we can face when trying to "be yourself"
  • The different experiences of eating disorder "recovery"
  • Our responsibility to our mental health
  • And Una's distaste for cheese...

I loved speaking with Una and I hope you all enjoy it too.
