One word to describe 2020? Heavy. The country not only has suffered a pandemic, but now people across the nation are protesting as a way to demand an end to police brutality. Many people have struggled with their mental health in the process, which is something that’s not lost on actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict. Tia has shared ways she’s managed her anxiety and fear during the past several months.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, June 23, with a photo of her smiling wide, the 41-year-old “Family Reunion” sitcom star shared that she is meditating to cope with her uneasiness. “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine. As I’ve suffered with #anxiety and #fear these past few months. I’ve looked to my #ancestors and have meditated on the #strength and the #faith that they have endured while being on this earth,” she wrote.
Tia hinted that she relies on a spiritual source to help her deal with her worries. “Additionally, I’ve meditated on what my mother told me a few weeks ago. As I get out of bed everyday, put my feet on the ground with an open heart and say, “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength. Amen 🙏🏽,” she concluded.
Almost instantly, fans praised the “Sister, Sister” alum for sharing the secrets to managing her fears. “You are a walking ray of sunshine!!!” one user wrote. Another fan commented, “Thank you Tia❤️❤️. Definitely going to use this.”
Tia revealed in an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle from April that she meditated quite frequently during her shelter-in-place days, explaining that one session in particular made her cry. The mother of two implied that she was focusing on her children Cree Hardrict, 8, and Cairo Hardrict, 2, during her study and was not really tapping into how she was feeling at the moment.
The Germany native mentioned that she embraced her emotions during the session. “Crying doesn’t always mean a terrible thing,” she said. “It was very uplifting for me because I was just able to get rid of all of that energy, and just tap into feeling overwhelmed with what’s going on in this world, but then, you know my husband [Cory Hardrict] and I we meditate together, we looked at each other afterward and he said, ‘You know what, Tia? We’re going to be alright.’ ”
