Former Disney star Selena Gomez collaborated with Instagram to talk about mental health care during the quarantine. The Rare singer gave fans a tour of her house in the process while also detailing her self-care routine.
“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,” the singer said in the video posted by Instagram.
“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,” she said. “Some of the things that help me is my DBT books [Dialectical Behavior Therapy]. 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.”
Selena Gomez stated that it was okay to not do something every single day during the quarantine.
“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 shared.
The Wizards of Waverly Place actor also described her unwinding process at the end of the day.
“The last part of my routine is my unwinding process. 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,” she said.
In addition, Selena also stated that she likes to journal sometimes.
“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.”
