KEY POINTS

  • Selena Gomez calls someone on the phone whenever she finds it hard to get out of bed
  • The "Rare" singer encouraged others struggling with their mental health to learn about their triggers
  • Gomez hates working out, but she enrolled in a boxing class because it helps her release her frustrations

Selena Gomez got candid about the days when she could hardly get out of bed due to her mental health problems.

In a video shared on Wondermind's Instagram account, Gomez, 29, talked about her secret weapon for when she's struggling with her mental health. She admitted that there were days when she couldn't get herself out of her bed in the morning.

"Sometimes I'm not good at it," the "Only Murders in the Building" star said in the video. "I'll just wake up and I struggle maybe sometimes just getting out of bed."

Whenever she would feel like she did not have the energy to get out of her bed, the "Rare" singer would reach for her phone and call someone.

"What helps me, first and foremost, is just picking up the phone and calling someone," she continued.

Aside from asking for help and support from others, the "Monte Carlo" star encouraged those experiencing the same problem to take the time to understand themselves and know what triggers them, so they can find ways to combat them.

"I constantly try to fill myself with knowledge of what it is that I am feeling and the triggers that happen to me," she shared. "So I think what really helps me understand myself a bit more is that I can take a step back and think of all the tools I've learned and try to implement them in my everyday life. That's usually what helps me."

Gomez's tips also included working out. The singer-actress admitted that she wasn't a fan of it, but being physically active somehow helped her release her frustrations.

"I hate working out," she groaned in the video. "It is not fun, but I've been doing intense boxing classes recently, and it has really helped me get a lot of frustration but also just energy out and it feels so good."

Gomez has been very vocal about her mental health struggles. Last month, she announced her new project, Wondermind, that aims to change how people perceive mental health. She started the company with her mom, Mandy Teefey, and Daniella Pierson with the goal of creating "a world where caring for your mental health is democratized and destigmatized."

Gomez and her Wondermind co-founders recently graced the cover of Entrepreneur, and she shared it on Instagram.

"Mental health is something that is very close to my heart. It is so important to have places where people can come together and understand that they’re not alone in their mental fitness journey," she wrote in the caption. "That’s why I’ve joined forces with @mandyteefey and @daniella_pierson to bring you @officialwondermind - Launching in 2022."
