We all crave to feel more comfortable in our skin. We read self-help books and exercise and search for answers at every turn to find that feeling of wholeness. While the items listed above mark great places to start, the answers are really inside of us at all times.
Where To Turn

Inhale, visualize drawing your breath into the base of your spine at your root. Allow the breath to travel up the spine to the space between the brows. Exhale, send the breath back down to the root and visualize it binding you down, even via roots growing into the Earth.”
