Camila Cabello just shared her simple tip to overcome anxiety
Camila Cabello is opening up about her battle with anxiety. The Latin singer recently took to her Instagram to reveal she is using meditation to battle her obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Take a break from your phone
She started explaining why she refuses to go on social media, "it's not good for me, and I don't know how to not be affected by what people say on here so I just don't read it- but I am totally aware that I can use this platform to help people even in small ways!"
She continued, "so to anyone on here who is struggling, which we all do sometimes cause we're human!!! I super recommend taking five minutes out of your day to just breathe."
Camila explained that this technique has improved the quality of her life.
"I've been doing this lately and it's helped me so much, I didn't understand meditation before, or the concept of just noticing your breath, but I've been doing it the past few months and I can feel the quality of my life improving - I used to live so much in my head , constantly trapped in my overthinking and being in my head as opposed to the present moment- and lately just going back to my breath and focusing on it puts me back in my body and back in the present and helps me so much, " Cabello said.
She reminded her followers that's really important to take a moment on their daily routines just to breathe.
"Take five minutes out of your day today to just inhale for 5 seconds through your nose, and exhale for 5 seconds through your mouth - and super focus on your breath and how it feels coming in and out of your nostrils. Do it three times a day and whenever you feel yourself getting overwhelmed," Camila added.
Live in the moment
She also encouraged her fans to take a step back from their everyday hectic lives and live in the present.
"I know lots of us on here are growing up and learning how to be human lol, and that can be intense and hard sometimes - I think some tools are really life changing and help you know how to do that better, so I just thought I'd share something that's really helped me; and hopefully it helps you guys!" the artist concluded in her post.
