can i share something with you?
in my early twenties i had panic attacks + suffered with anxiety. (thank you years of excess drink + disco*) I struggled to talk to people without feeling hugely uncomfortable + anxious + i was being hit with overwhelming panic attacks almost daily which made me scared of them happening again………then someone suggested yoga. I learnt that the breath could teach me to gain control + harness my attacks. I followed this over ten years + my practice moved with me, sometimes physically, sometimes spiritually. it’s led me to studying yogic philosophies + trainings. also in my twenties i developed IBS! so i learnt to understand + adapt my lifestyle + diet. I’ve also experienced times of tough mental health.
each of these experiences presented to show me something new. through tried (+failed) approaches, i live almost flare free of IBS + haven’t had a panic attack in almost a decade. i know when to take care + be cautious. i approach each day with learnt yoga, diet + lifestyle practices. i explore natural movement + easy stretching enjoying what feels good when it feels good. i avoid what feels bad as much as possible. self-care is by my side almost most of the time + I nurture my connection to it. i have developed a relationship with my body. I’m not perfect…for now though, this is me…..
do you know what works for you?
*(disco + music + dancing is still good, it will always be good. ive just adapted my way of appreciating it 💫)
