In this episode, Kev describes trying a blindfolded driving experience with the amazing charity Speed of Sight. Kev describes the range of emotions he experienced and how he now has a better appreciation not only of the work that Speed of Sight does but also how he has a better appreciation of what it is like to feel stressed and panicky while behind the wheel.

While listening to this episode, ask yourself:

If you feel nervous, scared or panicky while driving, what are your stress symptoms?
Do you recognise when the logical part of your brain starts to shut down?
What strategies have you found that work for you?
