Cheryl has been enjoying her time at home with son Bear amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But she admits her whole approach to work has shifted since she found herself forced to stay at home.

Her focus now is on things that make her happy rather than just working for the sake of it and she refuses to do anything that leaves her feeling "stressed or nervous".

When asked if she would return to work in the same way she had been before, she told Marie Claire magazine: "I’m not doing that to myself again, no. I’m only going to do stuff that makes me truly happy.

"I think life falls into place when you focus on that intent. Only happiness. Only authenticity.

"I won’t spend time on anything that makes me feel stressed or nervous. I haven’t got the energy."

And Cheryl says the pandemic has been a "really valuable lesson" for her and has allowed her a chance to reflect on life.

"It’s not worth it. The pandemic actually taught us that. You speak to people now and they don’t want to go back to their normal lives," she added.

"I think we’ve learnt a really valuable lesson, as horrible and tragic and despicable as it was, and it brought a lot of awareness and self reflection, for the better.

"It's about what’s important, and what makes you happy, and what makes you miserable."

The Parachute singer understands that people are anxious about returning to work – but she doesn't believe it's anything to do with the pandemic, but more about their thoughts of pre-Covid life.

"People are anxious about going back into the office, and they may blaming the pandemic, but it’s not pandemic-related. It’s likely about what they didn’t like about their lives before," she added.

Her main focus is her son Bear

Cheryl says not having work during the pandemic gave her a chance to focus on her wellness.

Because she was at home all the time, she was able to consistently take supplements and she has now partnered with a supplement company called Feel.

She explained: "During the pandemic, I was calm because I wasn’t rushing around working all day. I had the time, space, and mental clarity to have a routine, so I actually did take them consistently. I was shocked at the benefits."
