"I have anxiety, I’ve always had anxiety," Reynolds said. "Both in the lighthearted 'I’m anxious about this' kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun."
Headspace, a popular app among Olympic athletes, Wall Street executives, and a number of celebrities, has around 8.5 active million active users, according to the company's most recent report on its user base.
The app has a straightforward set-up that teaches you how to meditate through breathing exercises and visualisation. For an in-depth take on the app, you can read this Business Insider feature on Headspace from 2016.

“When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he said. "That’s that great self-defence mechanism. I figure if you’re going to jump off a cliff, you might as well fly.”
