The pandemic threatens not just our physical health but also our mental wellbeing. However, it can even be more taxing for people who already were suffering from personal battles prior to the coronavirus outbreak to face the uncertainty of the current state of the world – and Selena Gomez understands this as she had been vocal about her struggles even before this global dilemma.
Selena Gomez’s Own Battles
The former Disney child star has always been transparent when it comes to her mental health problems, which is why she has throngs of solid fans and remains to be one of the most followed celebrities on social media. During the onset of the pandemic, Selena, who hasn’t contracted the virus, learned that her mental health is very well affected by the global threat.
She sympathizes with those who are feeling down during the pandemic and even shared her journey with her supporters. This is especially important since most people who were isolated from the rest of the world have already been feeling the adverse effects of this setup.
While some people prefer the indoors and being alone, being socially isolated and cut out from seeing their loved ones face to face could be detrimental to those with mental health battles. Selena knows the realities of it.
Coping up With the Pandemic
As much as we want the pandemic to just vanish in a blink of an eye, it seems like it’s here to stay for a long while. Selena has been adjusting her routines to this ‘new normal’ and fans are loving that she is sharing how the journey has been.
The ‘Wolves’ singer, just like us, stays at home – although it sounds like an easy chore, remaining put in our houses is actually hard. Selena said that she finds ways to get her through these days and thankfully, she has great friends and a therapist to make this task easier.
During this time, Selena has learned so much about herself and the country, more than what she has learned in school.
Selena also has been doing an awesome job at her house and has been filming her very own cooking show, ‘Selena + Chef,’ because she wants to do something fun for her viewers. Since she was feeling down, she thought that a lighthearted project could uplift her and others as well.
