Selena Gomez has been vocal about her struggle with mental health issues and disclosed how she is keeping her mental health in check during the coronavirus lockdown. She even collaborated with Instagram to give a close tour of her home during quarantine.
“I think right now, it is more important than ever to talk about mental health, which is a subject that is very personal to me,” she started.
“So I’m asking you guys to take a break with me, and I’m going to show you some of the things that help me stay positive during this time and see if any of it resonates with you.”
The Rare songstress took viewers around her house, into her personal recording studio, and finally into her bedroom while letting out what she does to maintain her mental balance while being in quarantine.

“Some of the things that help me is my DBT books [Dialectical Behavior Therapy],” Gomez started. “And every single day, I’ll look at a worksheet or if there’s something I’ working on, internally, I’ll just kind of find a chapter that relates to me. It’s okay not to do something every single day but when I’m feeling up for it and I’m feeling creative, this is my little area of creativeness. This is our makeshift studio. This is how basically I write or work on music that needs to be worked on.”
She emphasized on the fact that how it is okay to not be productive every single day and spilled the beans on how she works only when she feels creative.
The last part of my routine is my unwinding process,” she continued. “So I usually take a walk at night because I can get rid of the day a bit. And then I come home, take a shower, wash my face, and then when I get into bed, my friends laugh at me, but I have a heating pad. It’s almost like an anxiety blanket. It feels really nice. I will sometimes journal. And I have these beautiful little like, face sprays, rosewater, a candle to help me as well. And then I have my little Daisy, and we just kind of get into bed. I turn off all my electronics and I just relax.”
Selena makes it a mandate to turn off her electronics before finally hitting the bed. “I will sometimes journal. And I have these beautiful little like, face sprays, rosewater, a candle to help me as well. And then I have my little Daisy, and we just kind of get into bed. I turn off all my electronics and I just relax.”
