Demi Lovato is singing Will Smith's Summertime – in her swimsuit. The singer and actress shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit in one of her latest social media posts, lounging by a pool. "Summa summa summa time," she captioned the Instagram post. How does she maintain her amazing and healthy body? Read on for 5 ways Demi Lovato prioritizes health and wellness and the photos that prove they work.
Demi Prioritizes Happiness
During an interview with model Ashley Graham for her "Pretty Big Deal" podcast, Demi admits she was once so obsessed with working out and losing weight, she would exercise multiple times a day. "I'd eat a meal, go work out," they said. "That's not happiness to me. That's not freedom."
She Accepts Her body
Demi is an advocate of body positivity. "We hear the term body positivity all the time. To be honest, I don't always feel positive about my body. Sometimes I do not like what I see. I don't sit there and dwell on it. I also don't lie to myself," she said during the Summit. "I used to look in the mirror if I was having a bad body image day and say 'I love my body, you're beautifully and wonderfully made.' But I didn't believe it. I don't have to lie to myself and tell myself I have an amazing body. All I have to say is 'I'm healthy.' In that statement, I express gratitude. I am grateful for my strength and things I can do with my body. I am saying I'm healthy and I accept the way my body is today without changing anything."
She Doesn't Obsess Over Diet or Exercise
Lovato ended up losing weight, not because she was trying but because she finally learned how to live a healthy lifestyle. "I don't count calories anymore. I don't over-exercise anymore. I don't restrict or purge. And I especially…don't live my life [according] to the diet culture…and I've actually lost weight," they captioned a recent Instagram video. "I feel full. Not of food, but of divine wisdom and cosmic guidance, peace, serenity, joy, and love."
Demi is Proud
"I'm not naturally super thin. I have an athletic body. I just have to embrace that. There are days when it's hard to, but more and more, there are days where I'm actually proud of my body," Demi told Complex.
She Takes Time for Self-Care
Demi prioritizes self-care. "I definitely take time for myself," she told Hoda Kotb in a recent TODAY interview "Luckily, I'm in a position in my career where I've kind of paid my dues a little bit. I've been around the block, so I don't have to run myself into the ground anymore like I used to do when I was first starting out."
