On The Reset Room this week, National World’s new lifestyle and mental wellness podcast, Kelly and Amana tackle the destructive nature of toxic environments.

Amana Walker, who has more than 25 years of coaching experience in personal development, provides some advice on how to deal with these situations, whether they are on a very personal level, at work or at home, or on a more public stage, such as social media.

In this episode we hear how, for many of us, our first experience of a toxic environment as children is when we encounter playground bullying.

Sadly, many people also experience it in adulthood with workplace problems and negative work cultures.  Amana gives some solid advice around how to spot these situations and extract yourself from them.

We also hear from a listener who is struggling with a toxic environment in her own family home.
