Bella Hadid is one of the biggest supermodels of the moment but that doesn’t mean she’s nonhuman. The 25-year-old model has been struggling with mental health up to the point that she wasn’t able to ‘post nice pictures on social media.’ In an interview with WSJ. Magazine, Hadid opened up about her struggles and how she’s been able to cope while carrying out her daily activities.
As per the model, mental health can be very unstable as she may feel better today and the opposite the next day. “I do have good days,” Hadid explained. “Today is a good day. My brain fog is feeling better, I don’t feel depressed. I don’t have as much anxiety as I usually do. But tomorrow I could wake up and [be] the complete opposite. That’s why I get so overwhelmed.”
But however, the model is more concerned with maintaining a state of gratitude, and this, she achieves by swamping in a morning routine — for example, reading her favorite book: ‘The Artist’s Way,’ which encourages her to have a dedicated time to herself every morning.
“Every morning, [I write] three pages, journaling,” she added. “What’s important for me is to have that ritual and have that moment to myself. … I try to do a gratitude meditation every morning. If it’s on my way to work, I usually put it on in the car, on the loudspeaker, so whoever’s driving me and I have a nice moment of gratitude together.”
