I’ve interviewed 15 people who have been helped by mindfulness, and here are the top 5 struggles that these people have overcome:

  1. Anxiety (8 posts)
  2. Stress (7 posts)
  3. Childhood (5 posts)
  4. Depression (5 posts)

In our many years of publishing helpful mental health content, we always received questions from our readers about specific situations. While we have a lot of helpful tips to share on how to be happier, we simply can’t offer advice for every situation.

That’s why I’ve set out to interview folks with every type of mental health struggle. My job as an interviewer is to categorize these interviews and present them in a way that is most helpful to our readers.

Yoga Helped Me Overcome Anxiety, Binge Eating and Body Dysmorphia

“At my worst moments, post-college, I think I truly hated myself. Again, to the outside eye, I was high-functioning, but I was making really poor decisions. I was cheating on my boyfriend at the time, partying for all hours, and doing anything I could to escape my reality.”

How I Realized That I Experienced Narcissistic Abuse and My Journey of Healing

“I remember moments of feeling completely hopeless like I had no identity outside of my dysfunctional relationships. At my lowest, I numbed feelings with unhealthy habits. With support and inner work, I’ve realized my worth comes from within. Now I know approving of myself is what matters most.”
