Last year was a record-breaking one for anxiety in America. For the first time since 2007, the American Psychological Association’s survey “Stress in America” revealed an increase in stress overall. This January, an international study revealed that of the huge number who suffer from anxiety worldwide, just 10 percent receive acceptable treatment.
Celebrities, despite their fame, are not immune from this epidemic. In recent years, many have begun speaking out about their own struggles with anxiety and other mental health issues, and sharing ways that they cope. Although these shouldn’t be considered a substitute for things like psychotherapy or psychiatric medicine, they can — at the very least — help you to de-stress after an anxiety-ridden day.
