Trevor Noah has come forward and admitted that he suffers from anxiety and that Covid-19 only made it worse. Mental health is so important and is something that should be discussed openly.
Speaking to South China Morning Post, Trevor explained how following a routine helped manage his anxiety, however, when the pandemic hit, that all went out the window.
Trevor admits that the pandemic spiked his anxiety
As reported by Timeslive, Trevor explained how Covid-19 spiked his anxiety and sent him into a bit of a depression.
“It was terrible. Are you kidding me? If anyone struggles with depression, if anyone’s working through anxiety, you can do a good job of managing that. You can manage how you eat, you can manage how you exercise, how you get fresh air, how you associate with people.
"All these things contribute to your mental health. Having it all stripped away at once took a toll on society that I don’t think we’ve begun to understand.”
Trevor admits he is a workaholic and Covid-19 made him slow down
Having worked nonstop for a very long time, being forced to chill had Trevor feeling all kinds of panicky.

“I’ve spent more than a decade working nonstop. Which is a badge of honour in America. In many other parts of the world, people would say, ‘You have a problem.’ I’ve missed weddings. I’ve missed birthdays. I’ve missed funerals. Then something like this happens and you go, ‘Man. I’ve missed a lot of life’.”
Trevor, like many others, was affected by the lockdowns. Even though it was a hard time, it gave Trevor the time to reflect on a lot of things he never even knew were a problem.
