London: Singer Cheryl cole wants a relaxed, six-month long break on a mountain after going through a marriage split and contracting malaria in 2010.

It would be nice to take six months out and got to a mountain top and just meditate, let myself go," Cole has been quoted as saying by contactmusic .

Last year was quite stressful for her as she divorced her soccer player husband Ashley Cole and battled potentially-fatal malaria, which she contracted during a trip to Africa with rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough.

After her split, she even thought of taking some therapy, but decided against it.

"It crossed my mind but I`m not trusting enough to bare my soul to a stranger. I`m lucky that I`ve got friends and family to turn to," she said.

No matter how she felt, she was determined to put on a brave face in public.

"It`s very much a perception. Nobody knows what I went through behind closed doors.

"Nobody knows what it was like when I was on my own. Of course I held it together in public. Who wouldn`t?"

She is now a judge on the US version of " The X Factor".
