What helped me
Moved to the sea - greater connection with the elements.
Helped me massively to calm down. I go to classes at Margate Hotpod Yoga. All the teachers there are amazing but the owner of it, Meegan Bradley, is particularly awesome.

Took up a new career as an artist - a new focus that I was always meant to do really
Still do now, great to share. I speak to a talking therapist over the phone every two weeks. It’s been a huge help to have that support particularly in the last year in the aftermath of my mum's death.

Talk to others about it - problem shared and all.
Meditate and realise the difference between thoughts and reality. I see yoga as a form of meditation too so I guess this is where I started it and learnt about the power of the mind and body to heal itself with a little guidance.
I use the headspace app.
I burn a load of incense. I also go for early morning sunrise and sunset walks along the coast. Listened to kundalini chants and chilled out tunes.
A great release. I LOVE spin and kettle bell classes at my local gym, Urban Fitness in Margate. I get on better with classes and love the music in group sessions too. I find the whole group thing really uplifting and the instructors are tough but incredible. We have a laugh but we work really hard too.
