I was always such a worrier and anxious person.
Over the years, I’d tried virtually every wellbeing technique going. Meditation, deep breathing, yoga, “sitting on the sofa eating chocolate” (less well known to be honest) but I failed to find the peace of mind I craved and felt convinced I was on a “forever” journey.
After having my daughter, moving house and advancing towards the BIG 50 things started to fall apart in my mind. That’s not to say, I went to get help or told anyone what was happening – I just kept on as usual.
But inside, I felt as if life was always going to be a slog and enjoying life, having anything remotely like contentment, was an impossible dream.
