She shared a picture of herself looking cheery in yoga gear, explaining how the practice helps her stay calm.

“After trying many different methods over the years to help with my #anxiety the one main thing that makes a difference for me is daily #Yoga practise,” she said.

“I find that it helps calm my thoughts, gain perspective and appreciate the ‘now’ instead of worrying about the future. And a little bonus is my body feels a lot better for it too, not just my mind! 😉🧘🏻‍♀️
