Hey, I'm Claire
After developing extreme anxiety aged 11, suffering 2 breakdowns before I turned 28, I knew something had to change. I couldn’t continue to live like this. It was only then I discovered mindfulness and the true power it has over us. Curious as to why no doctor had ever suggested something like this, I asked. Guess what… they didn’t have an answer but were ‘encouraged’ I was being so “proactive” when in actual fact it was a reaction. When you’re in the midst of being broken, I felt nothing but anger at how badly I had been failed, since I was 11 years old, repeatedly. So when I recovered, I took it upon myself to be proactive instead of reactive. Ever since, I’ve been insanely happy with my life despite being disabled, needing a wheelchair and being housebound. It’s all through a healthy balance of self care, meditation, talking therapies and medications. Any one of these is powerful but doing them all together? Turns it into a super power.
