How I’m Navigating Lifelong Anxiety With Breathwork and Better Boundaries

Meditation and Wellness Helped Me Navigate GAD and Transform My Life

“I began medication, which can be a bit of a taboo in the wellness and yoga worlds. A lot of people believe you can ‘heal’ yourself through diet and meditation. But I had been trying that approach my whole life and though I definitely had periods where my anxiety was lessened, this was a point where I needed way more help.”
