There I was at 12 years old: anxious, depressed and lonely. I had just moved across the country with my family and I was an introvert with social anxiety.

I won't get into all of the details but my anxiety and even suicidal thoughts were terrifying for my parents. I look back and feel such heartache for how we all felt during that difficult time.

This is when I was first prescribed the antidepressant, Prozac, for my social anxiety and depression. It helped take the edge off but I wish we know about natural resources t...

This photo was taken yesterday among exhaustion and sadness.

A lot happened over the weekend, which just goes to show that we never really know what life will bring. We have no control, even if we think we do.

It’s a crisp autumn morning, one that demands staying in bed and sleeping the day away. But instead of giving in to old habits, you jump out of bed, do your morning routine that includes stretching and meditating, and then you brew your favorite herbal tea and enjoy it in the silence of the morning. Although you have a busy day ahead, you look at your schedule and find peace knowing that you will have an hour of release at yoga class tonight. Before leaving the house you make your bed and tidy your night stand, maki...
