  • On the second hour of Good Things Utah this morning – Do you feel pressure to reinvent yourself now that the pandemic is coming to an end? We have advice from a popular podcaster who says you shouldn’t feel like you have to make huge life changes in just a year. We have her advice for you this morning.
  • Plus, compulsive behaviors have increased during the pandemic, and if you are suffering experts say you are not alone. According to a recent survey, body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs) have increased in 67.2 of those who suffer since COVID-19. Journal Of The American Academy of Dermatology reports, “Although this study was limited by modification of standardized scales and its self-reported survey design, it suggests that anticipated psychological effects of the pandemic are, in fact, materializing. Respondents with both skin and hair BFRBs reported increased distress and functional impairment.” Reagan gets personal and shares her story about stress and anxiety and what she did to feel better.
  • And finally, whether it’s debuting an edgy new haircut or switching up your go-to hairstyle, there’s just something about spring that always makes us want to give our looks a complete overhaul. If there’s anything we’ve learned about the major hair changes we’ve seen take place so far this year, it’s that people love a new hair color, and no colors have made as big of an impact this year than copper tones. Now we’re seeing the emergence of an all-new custom shade of red just in time for spring called “tiger daylily.” We have pictures of the hot new hair look!
  • And at the end of the show, Reagan shows us her favorite life hacks. Including what to do if your bathroom mirror keeps fogging up. Hope you join us for a Tuesday edition of the second hour of GTU!
