Anxiety is something I've never really talked about before in public. I've always felt like anxiety = unstable/crazy in society. But I realize now that's not necessarily the case.
If you've ever been unfortunate enough to have a panic attack, you probably know the feeling like you're 'going to die'. Your heart speeds up, your vision gets blurry, your chest starts hurting, fingers go numb, and you are certain you're having a heart attack/dying. It's the worst.
During grad school I had them all the time until I got the right amount of counseling & meds to stop them.
But earlier this week it happened again.
A full blown anxiety attack.
I can't explain exactly why, but after a really stressful day I found myself hyperventilating on my bed wishing it would stop. And it finally did.
Now I know the WORST thing you can do with a medical problem is to Google it…but I caved. And I actually came across something really encouraging....a list of meditation videos to help you relax and de-stress.
You can check out the full list HERE.
I'll be honest I've always been a skeptic to meditation or the whole yogi-lifestyle, but I found these videos incredibly helpful. It might not be for everyone, but I thought I would share a few of my favs in case you want to give it a shot:
