16th August – Coping With Stressful Waiting – Dr Clare Jonas

Life is full of stressful waits, from the delay between taking exams and getting your results, to organisational restructures at work, to the long, grinding experience of living through a seemingly unending COVID lockdown.

In this talk, I’ll cover research on what makes waiting so stressful and why different people react in different ways. I’ll then go through some techniques that can help you cope with stressful delays.


Dr Clare Jonas is a science communicator with a PhD in psychology. In her spare time, she writes That Thinking Feeling, a blog which explores how psychology can answer everyday questions like why plane food tastes terrible and why we can’t remember being born.
