Is it best to write in a very personal, first person way like this:

|A women suffering from anxiety believes she's handling stress just fine, may not even recognize when or why she's feeling anxious, and chalk it up to "having a bad day." But, too many bad days can be detrimental to your health. In fact, it might even kill you.|
I write better in the first person, and am willing to share details.
However, will publishers like that too? Or does it depend on the niche and the publisher?
Or are there no hard and fast best practices?
