Britney Spears is a ‘Euphoria’ fan, says it helped her anxiety

Britney Spears is a fan of “Euphoria” and says the hit HBO series was “like meditation” for her.

“For MENTAL AWARENESS WEEK a little while ago I watched this insane amazing show @euphoria,” she wrote via Instagram on Friday, alongside a clip showing lead actress Zendaya shooting at another character.

“Good God it’s too good!!!! I’m a little behind anyways 🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!!”

According to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Mental Illness Awareness Week takes place Oct. 2 through Oct. 8 each year.

Spears, 40, would have still been under her 13-year conservatorship when she watched “Euphoria.” She was not freed until Nov. 12.

“Watching this and being entertained by these crazy plots I suddenly felt all my anxiety go away,” the “Stronger” singer shared on Instagram. “The show was like meditation!!!!”

She added, “It put a HUGE grin on my face … and if you want to be zen … there’s sound therapy 👂🏼 … stillness … yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️ … monk retreats … but last but definitely not least, train your thoughts to think things that make you SMILE … YES you know THOSE 👍👍👍 !!!! YOU GOT IT???? KEEP SMILING 😄!!!!!”

Earlier in March, Spears shared another tip that helped her overcome her anxiety: nail art.

The “Toxic” singer showed off her nude nails embellished with a pink butterfly, bow and “lady emblem,” and said the charms “change” your perspective.

“I have social anxiety but like the worst kind where it’s unbearable 😔 … but holy s–t there’s hope!” she added. “I looked at my hands, saw these charms and I exploded 💥 with conversation … not scared at all to talk.”

Throughout the past five months since Spears’ conservatorship ended, the “Piece of Me” singer has worked on healing from all of the trauma she experienced.

In February, Spears posted on Instagram a letter Congress sent her in December 2021, asking her to meet with them to discuss issues surrounding conservatorship laws.

However, the “Gimme More” singer said she declined because she “wasn’t nearly at the healing stage I’m in now.”

“In a world 🌎 where your own family goes against you, it’s actually hard to find people that get it and show empathy 🤷‍♀️🙄 !!!!” she wrote at the time. “Again, I’m not here to be a victim although I’m the first to admit I’m pretty messed up by it all … I want to help others in vulnerable situations, take life by the balls and be brave 💪 !! !”
