She added that social media breaks, as well as time with her family, are a must for switching off. 

‘It’s important for me to have space and time with my friends and family. When I’m with them, I try to be really present and just enjoy the moment,’ she says.

‘I think it’s so important to take breaks from scrolling on social media… It makes a big difference with mental health’ the Good For You hitmaker added. 

The Heart Wants What It Wants hitmaker previously revealed she had bipolar disorder, but admits before she got a diagnosis, she felt ‘really alone’ because she didn’t know anyone else felt the way she did.

‘It is something that is very close to me. I’ve been honest about things in mental health and about my story, so I knew that it was going to be something that I should include,’ the Rare singer told Bustle last year.  

‘I know that there is still such a stigma, but there’s still so many people who don’t even know their diagnosis.’

The ex of Justin Bieber added, ‘And it is really frustrating because when people don’t know, it feels like you’re really alone, and you feel crazy. Because like, why doesn’t anyone else feel like I feel?’

She added:  ‘I would just say that I would not have been able to walk through any of this without my family, even my chosen family. I think having a connection to people is what keeps me sane. 

‘And I also feel like taking walks around, being in nature – all of that sounds cliche, but it’s actually very true.’
