How Adele is taking steps to deal with her postpartum depression head-on

When it comes to her music, Adele has long worn her heart on her sleeve. Her powerhouse vocals combined with the raw, so-honest-it-hurts lyrics have made her a superstar. But there’s been a struggle the singer has kept completely hidden—until now.

In a new Vanity Fair cover story, Adele admits to struggling with postpartum depression, and being too ashamed to tell anyone what she was feeling. “I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me,” she says. “I didn’t talk to anyone about it. I was very reluctant.”

“Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever I want without my baby.”

When she finally did open up to a friend—who happened to be dealing with the same thing—she says it was like a weight was lifted off her. Another thing that helped? Giving herself a break. “Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it,” she explains.

Adele is the latest celebrity shedding light on mental health issues, joining Kristen Bell, Lady Gaga, and Demi Lovato in breaking the silence around the formerly taboo subject and talking about struggling while simultaneously trying to live your best life. Adele always keeps it real—just another reason why she rocks.

Do you have high-functioning depression? Here’s how to know. One thing that can help? Changing your diet.
