Sydney Sweeney detailed the mental health impact of her packed schedule

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Sweeney revealed that during the month of June, she started to experience panic attacks. “I was losing my shit,” she said.

In response to the panic attacks, Sweeney took some time off. She shared that she put away her phone and spent some time among family. Although that period helped to stabilize her anxiety, she revealed, “I still can’t get my mind to shut up, and I don’t sleep.” 

She attributed some of her anxiety to her recent schedule. As you may have noticed, Sweeney has been quite busy. She starred in Euphoria and The White Lotus, earning Emmy nominations for each. She's also set to star in Sony's Madame Webb. That increased fame has also come with a number of appearances, and Sydney has been spotted at the Met Gala and multiple awards show, and she even threw out the first pitch at a recent Boston Red Sox game.

It's important that she recognized her symptoms of anxiety and was able to act upon those feelings. Sweeney is not the only celeb to experience panic attacks, and approaching panic attacks comes down to finding a treatment method works for you. While experiencing a panic attack, you could try expert-approved options like talking to yourself and controlling your breathing. You can also make an appointment with a therapist or a medical professional that can help with your symptoms.

Along with her open discussion around mental health, Sweeney used the interview to touch on her personal life. She shared what she envisions her future to include, saying, “I want to have a family, I’ve always wanted to be a young mom, and I’m worried about how this industry puts stigmas on young women who have children and looks at them in a different light. I was worried that, if I don’t work, there is no money and no support for kids I would have.”

We're certain that no matter what the future holds for Sydney Sweeney, her days ahead are definitely bright.
