Ellie Goulding talks about how her worry was so bad that it made her go into “overdrive.”

Ellie Goulding talked about her “debilitating” worry that she has had for years and how it caused her to go into overdrive during the pandemic and her pregnancy.

The 36-year-old singer, who gave birth to her boy Arthur in April 2021 with her husband Caspar Jopling, talked about how she deals with the disorder.

In a recent interview with The Independent, the singer of the hit “Love Me Like You Do” said, “It’s crippling. I put it off for years by working out a lot. I didn’t even notice because I was so busy running. When I finally stopped, I was like, “Oh.”

The musician went on to say that being pregnant during the lockdown “put my nervous system into overdrive,” and that her worry became even more “excruciating” without the outlet of performing.

Ellie went on to say that she feels better when she does “slower movements like stretching” and likes “holistic” approaches.

She said, “I’m just going to keep trying things. Since the pandemic, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have anxiety.”

Goulding’s new record, Higher Than Heaven, came out on Friday after being pushed back twice. The interview took place on Monday.

As her fifth album came out in the UK, Goulding was seen on her way to an album signing in London.

Higher Than Heaven was going to come out in February, but the date was changed to March 24, 2023.

But the album was put off again because it was hard to “source material” for physical formats.

At the time, the singer posted a long statement on Instagram, saying, “As you know, making these products as green as possible is very important to me, so we’ve worked very hard to keep that promise.”

She added, “As a result, and because it’s taking longer to find these products, we have to slightly delay the release to April 7 so that you can get these beautiful products as soon as we can.”

“Thank you so much for being patient, and I love you all so much. Ellie x”

This post was made after the singer broke the Internet when she gave a sneak peek at the music video for her new song Miracle with Calvin Harris, which was number 1 at the time.

Miracle, which came out on March 10, is Ellie’s third song with DJ Calvin Harris. I Need Your Love in 2013 and Outside in 2014 were both big hits.
