Occupation: Freelance journalist and radio jockey
Health issue: Anxiety
Symptoms: I’ve struggled with anxiety for the past few years and it became increasingly worse while I was pursuing my masters degree. I was constantly fatigued, stressed, and suffered migraines almost every other day. I also had anxiety attacks.
Health recommendations: Originally I took medication, however it made me feel numb and I didn’t want it to be a long-term solution. I needed to change my lifestyle. That’s when I found blogilates.com by Cassey Ho. She’s also the creator of POP Pilates, a form of Pilates that incorporates cardio. I started following her workout recommendations and advice for healthy eating.
The results After four months of closely following Ho’s workouts and diet advice I am migraine and anxiety attack free! I just finished my most difficult semester yet, but because my body is healthier I was able to thrive.
