Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha revealed she was suffering badly with anxiety on Tuesday morning. Nadia explained on her Instagram Stories: "I'm having one of those really annoying mornings this morning, where I woke up just so anxious and stressed about everything. And then what happens to me is I then feel guilty, because I think: 'My god look at your bloody life, what do you feel stressed about? What do you feel anxious about?' Thought I'd share with you how I'm feeling much better than I did when I first woke up."

How did she quell her anxiety? The 54-year-old continued: "So I did a really good meditation by Jonathan Lehmann, just a ten minute one. Then I had a little stretch, and now I'm out with my dogs!"

Nadia walked her dogs as she spoke into the camera about her anxiety 

The TV star is known for sharing positivity and self-help advice on social media. On Monday, Nadia surprised her Instagram followers with an inspiring snap of her skinny dipping!
