The same picture is also viral on Facebook.
A simple reverse image search of the viral image has directed us to an Instagram post by Sonali Seygall, an actress and influencer. In this post, Sonali can be seen doing Yoga and telling everyone the importance of breathing and meditation, especially for stress and anxiety relief. Her post reads as;
This is your reminder to just breathe. Have anxiety? Breathe. Stressed? Breathe. Nervous?Breathe. Angry? Breathe.
We often underestimate how much just coming back to our breath can do!
Not sure how to use your breath to your advantage? Here’s a beginners guide-
Sit in a comfortable position. Start taking deep breaths in n out (keep the exhalation longer), count them. Do it till you feel like or atleast till you are more relaxed than when you started. Happy Breathing.
Conclusion: A picture of Sonali Seygall doing Yoga is morphed with news anchor Rubika Liyaquat’s face and shared with insensitive comments.
