Human Interest: New Beginnings

Welcome to the Human Interest podcast. A podcast where we take a theme and explore it through stories, interviews and discussions.

This week as we go in to the new year we are looking at new beginnings. For many people the new year is an opportunity to start again with lots of us making resolutions to improve personally and professionally.

To explore this we look at the impact of New Years resolutions on your mental health and talk to Val Farmer and Stephen Buckley from Mind on how you can set better goals for yourself.

We also talk to climbing instructor and parkrun enthusiast Hazel McLean on how to stay motivated to exercise in the new year. Finally we talk to opera singer turned pantomime star Eleanor Sanderson-Nash about her professional and personal new beginnings.
