Spice Girl Mel B has recently opened up about the struggles with her mental health.

In a recent interview on Paul McKenna's Positivity Podcast, Mel shared that she has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). She went on to say in the podcast that she has also been diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia.

The singer, 44, explained how adding exercise into her routine has helped with her symptoms.

"I work out to help my mind," she said. "Exercise helps me meditate and get rid of my anxiety. It helps me focus on me for that one hour. I do have mental illness, you have to be a little bit crazy to do what I do."

With such a busy schedule, the entertainer has turned to nature to help ease her mind.

"I sit outside in the countryside sometimes and stare at sheep for six hours, it feeds you," Mel said on the podcast. "To be around green and nature. I know I sometimes intimidate people and I’m too brash and I’m too loud; being humble and grateful is important too. I’m trying to live my best life."

According to Fox News, Mel recently moved back to the U.K. from Los Angeles so she could be closer to her family. On her Instagram, she has shared with followers the time she is spending with her loved ones including her baby niece and her cute pup Cookie.

In 2018, Scary Spice revealed in her autobiography "Brutally Honest," she had attempted to take her own life in 2014. She shared in her book that the incident took place shortly before a live taping of "The X factor."

We wish the best for Mel B as she manages her mental health! We hope her transparency will help others struggling with similar issues seek professional help.
