‘I struggle at times too… the other day I felt so sad I cried all day. Then I was back to normal.

‘I think knowing you are not alone and actively taking steps to get out of your head is one of the most effective ways to feel better. 

‘Some days it’s super hard but some days you have the power to swing your mood around and taking action by doing the opposite of what your head is telling you.’ 

Among the questions asked was how the model coped with controlling her anxiety, with the follower adding that they were struggling at the moment.

She added: 'Feeling beyond excited and lucky to be having a baby and begin the next chapter of life with the man of my dreams!!!! Half way there @tomtomdaly ❤️.'

Elsa compassionately responded with a long, heartfelt reply in which she opened up about her own struggles.

She continued: ‘Opposite action!! Like if my head tells me not to get up from bed cause I feel overwhelmed, get up and get out of the house anyway! My head tells me to isolate – Call and meet up with someone and tell them how u feel! 

‘My head tells me I’m not good enough – prove the voice wrong!’
