Welcome to the **Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast**!
In this episode, our hosts **Dr. Andrew Tresidder** and **Dr. Peter Bagshaw** use their expertise to discuss how we **adapt to change** as we enter **the new normal**.
During the conversation, they cover **why we feel stressed when things change**, **breathing exercises that can help us cope**, **how adapting to change involves adjusting to feelings of loss** and much more as they dig deep into their experience as doctors and their own lives to share their expert insight.
The **SEW podcast** is a **free fortnightly show** hosted by **Dr. Andrew Tresidder** and **Dr. Peter Bagshaw**. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite **expert guests** to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.
The next episode of SEW, **Spirituality and Wellbeing**, will be available to listen to free from the **23rd of June 2020** through **Spotify**, **Apple Podcasts**, **Deezer**, **Google Podcasts**, [https://somersetemotionalwellbeing.podiant.co](https://somersetemotionalwellbeing.podiant.co)/ or wherever you get your podcasts!
