Her personal struggle with anxiety motivated her to research and implement a variety of holistic approaches into her lifestyle, such as changes in diet and the adoption of mindfulness meditation. She credits these lifestyle changes as well as many others with helping her better manage symptoms of anxiety and everyday stressors. She is most passionate about sharing what she has learned with others so that they can find relief in their lives as well. When she’s not writing or coaching, Emily enjoys cooking, yoga, and being active outdoors.
