Taylor Swift worries about everything, including any possible worst case scenario that could happen, either to her or her career, including making the wrong business decisions and recording a bad record. So how does she deal with that constant anxiety?

“I try to balance it,” she said. “I try to balance the fear with hope. I try to balance the kind of uncertainty with faith. I try to kind of walk that line and sometimes it’s unbalanced and sometimes it’s balanced and you lean in different directions every single day and that’s the fun of life; it’s unpredictable.”

As much as Taylor tries to keep her worry in check, sometimes she just has to give in. “Some days you’re just having that day,” she said. “Like a mental health day. You’re just off. You’re just feeling sad or you feel down or everything looks gray, and that’s okay. As long as I don’t have too many of those in a row, it’s okay to have those every once in a while.”

When Taylor does find herself worrying a lot, she has a plan to bring herself back to a better place. “I try to talk myself back into happiness and appreciation and gratitude and things like that,” she said.

Taylor recently kicked off her RED Tour, which is selling out shows across the country. She’s nominated for five ACM Awards, including Entertainer of the Year which she has won for the past two years.
