Mental Health Issues? These Famous Celebrities are Fighting With You!
Whenever we look at celebrities, we can’t help but think they are living the perfect life, one which all of us find to be aspirational.
This happens because celebrities make sure they put forward a happy face with a big smile in front of the cameras, hiding away all the pains they may be suffering in their personal and professional lives. However, as it has become evident after several celebrity suicides in recent years, this is clearly not the case.
Not only that, but celebrities have now also become more open about their mental health, specifically the issues they have faced in the past or continue to face even now. A lot of them are doing this because they want to increase awareness about mental health issues and promote discussion around this topic.
By revealing their own problems, they’re showing their fans that even they are susceptible to suffering from mental health issues, even with all their fame and fortune.
Emma Stone Fought Anxiety
Back in 2018, Emma Stone, the star of La La Land, revealed in an interview that she had suffered from anxiety ever since she was seven years old, which is also the time she suffered from her first-ever panic attack. According to Stone, her saving grace has been the acting profession as it has aligned well with who she is as an individual.
Fearne Cotton Has Beaten Depression
Fearne Cotton, who is vocal about mental health on many platforms, revealed in an interview that her husband played a huge role in helping her defeat depression. She was already married to him for a few years when the first bout of depression hit her. However, the pair decided not to cave in, and instead fight the depression together with all their might.
Stacey Solomon is Reading Books
The star of Loose Women, Stacey Solomon has spent a considerable amount of time worrying about her own mortality, especially right before hitting the bed. According to her, as soon as she would try to go to sleep, many disturbing thoughts would begin creeping into her mind, including those involving her own death and also upsetting things she had seen or even heard about someone else.
Although her anxiety has not gone away, Solomon has learned how to manage it. She has figured out the triggers which make her anxious and is dealing with them accordingly. For example, she recognized that bedtime is usually a difficult time for her, and so, as a countermeasure, she reads the most difficult-to-read book she can find and starts consuming it. Within a few minutes, her mind is absolutely exhausted and she falls asleep right away.
Claire Foy Has Been Self-Critical
When you have a mental health issue, there is no doubt it is going to impact other aspects of your life including and especially your career, as has been the case with Claire Foy. The Crown actress revealed that her anxiety has caused her to skip a lot of acting opportunities simply because she believed she wasn’t good enough. According to her, there is no logical reasoning involved when it comes to anxiety. It is just a very compelling feeling that whenever you will do something that’s out of your comfort zone, things will go wrong.
Shirley Ballas Is Meditating
Shirley Ballas, who is known for being a judge on the TV show Strictly Come Dancing, has also been suffering from anxiety and uses meditation as a way to cope with it. Ballas believes, and rightfully so, that without a stable mental health condition, it becomes very difficult for an individual to perform even the most basic functions.
To control her anxiety, Ballas uses controlled breathing, a meditation technique, which helps her relax.
Nadiya Hussain is Trying Her Best
Last, but certainly not the least, we have Nadiya Hussain, the winner of Great British Bake Off. Back in November last year, Nadia shared a heartfelt video with her fans revealing how she had suffered a panic attack which had left her completely powerless, and that its okay if her fans were going through the same. She delivered a message of hope in the video, asking her fans to follow her in fighting off anxiety, one day at a time.
