Evie Billon says, "No matter what it is that you’re dealing with, when you struggle with something that begins to take over your life—and even change your persona—then every day can feel like a battle. If you have ever experienced symptoms of or been diagnosed with a mental illness, eating disorder, addiction, or self-harmed you may understand how the world you once found yourself quite fond of, and certainly in control of, suddenly starts to feel like a prison."

Evie Billon discusses how mindfulness plays a big part in her addiction recovery, and explains the benefits of practicing mindfulness every day.
