I appreciated this complementary recommendation from meditation coach and yoga teacher, Morgan Balavage, “You can practice with simple questions, like: What should I eat for breakfast?

What happens when you fall in love is, you’ve met a kindred spirit whose light will shine on your darkest places. It can be uncomfortable!

To treat both the physical and the emotional symptoms, try yin yoga, she says. "It is an accessible (as in, all bodies can do it) but advanced (as in, for your mind) practice, and can be a beautiful physical release of emotional pain."
You'll want a high waist that stays put regardless of how much bending and stretching you do. But that's not the only thing to look for. If you're hitting a hot yoga class, seek out a fabric that dries quickly, says yoga instructor Morgan Balavage. Practicing at a slower pace?

I’m obsessed with Sun Potion green powders, especially their chlorella (instant energy burst), moringa (anxiety relief), and ashitaba (vegan blood builder).

I get it; you’ve got a lot going on and it’s hard to stop your monkey mind from playing with all the thoughts you’d rather not think, all those cringeable moments of mortification, like that time you boarded a flight and the check-in agent said, “Have a great flight!” and you responded, “You too!” How awkward.
