Paris Jackson has shared her thoughts on how to avoid depression and anxiety during the coronavirus health crisis.
The 21-year-old model believes that her life so far ha seen her having to sometimes hide away from the world and has had to battle the mental health issues that this can create.
Speaking to TMZ, the daughter of pop legend Michael Jackson said that she didn’t want her fans to feel ‘cut off’ from the world and urged them to get online to chat to others, in a way to beat the pandemic blues.
Paris said: “I think it helps that we live in a day and age when education is so easy so you can talk to talk to someone on the other side of the globe – that definitely helps to stay connected with other people.”
She did warn those that are shutting themselves away from the spread of Covid-19 not to “emotionally isolate.”
Paris seemed in a relaxed mood when she was stopped in the street and asked to answer some impromptu questions about the troubled times facing people everywhere.
She said: “I think this is pretty tricky because as humans by nature we are social creatures which is why we have lived in communities and tribes.
“I think it helps that we live in a day and age when education is so easy so you can talk to talk to someone on the other side of the globe – that definitely helps to stay connected with other people.”

She had one tip on how to spend the hours in self-isolation: ‘Painting is amazing, any kind of expression is good.”
