In a reflection of the “peaks and pits” of 2016 on her app, Kendall Jenner talked about her struggle with anxiety. Following the footsteps of her sister, Kim — who has been open about her struggle with psoriasis — Jenner was honest about the trials of having panic attacks.
“Anxiety was a huge hurdle for me to deal with this past year (and security concerns didn’t help),” she wrote. “But I think I’m finally learning how to cope.”
“I once had a really bad attack on a plane and just had to ride it out,” Jenner elaborated in another piece on her app. “I felt my heart beating a million miles an hour and I even went a little numb.” She’s since learned to cope by approaching the anxiety in a new way. “It’s all mental, so I try to prevent anxiety attacks by bringing my mind somewhere else.”
Jenner attached photos of her breathing deeply and doing a yoga pose on a rock, and said that doing breathing exercises helps her to calm down.
