Ellie Goulding Reveals How She Escapes From Her Mental Health Issues

Ellie Goulding Reveals How She Escapes From Her Mental Health Issues

English singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding shows how she escapes from her serious mental health issues by sharing a recent post on her verified Twitter account.

Goulding shared a mirror selfie photo during her gym session and showed her perfectly fit and muscular body on Twitter. Most of the fans praised her flawless body, but she wanted to point out a different topic.

The singer admitted that she struggled with some mental health issues over the years. However, she penned a sincere and open letter about her personality and sanity.

She has started her tweet thread:

“*There aren’t many muscular women in popular culture* 🤷🏼‍♀️ Nothing I do in the gym is for vanity. To me, it isn’t intimidating or scary to be strong (in fact anyone who has met me knows I am the most pathetically shy and self-deprecating person)”

She continued and wanted to show her followers that the ultimate escape from her problems:

“When posting gym photos, I only ever wanted to show that with all the things I’ve overcome, keeping fit and strong has been my ultimate escape.

I have no extraordinary athletic ability and I was crap at sports as a kid (I was so severely asthmatic I could barely even laugh without a coughing fit) but I’ve pushed myself and used all the willpower I can muster to keep at it.”

Goulding also advised fans that the fans should exercise to keep motivated in their lives:

“As hard as it is to stay motivated, especially right now, I still recommend it passionately for any mental health issues you are facing… even a small walk or jog. Ps – I didn’t do any exercise today because I didn’t want to! Might not tomorrow either.”

She also added and finished her thread:

“Love to all the strong women out there and to those just getting started- I am with you.”

Back in July, the singer opened up her anxiety and mental health problems during an interview with Yahoo Entertainment and said:

“I was amazed at how many people wrote to me saying thank you, saying, ‘Thanks so much for speaking out about this, because I’ve been called a freak and not being able to go to things because I’m too anxious.

Anxiety has obviously recently become something very talked about, which is good. But yeah, but I also had people kind of saying, ‘Oh, it’s pretty crazy that you’ve shared that much — and you overshared.’ I’m glad I did. I’m glad I did it, to begin with. And I’ll always talk about my issues. I realize how important it is to speak up about things because you don’t know how much it helps people.”
