Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
She Lost Over 60 Pounds
Cartia has lost over 60 pounds since her youth. "Not many people actually know but I was very overweight," Cartia told Girlfriend. "I've lost almost 30kg since I was really young so I struggled so much with self-confidence. I felt like I could never live my life properly because I was so self-conscious and I was bullied."
Vulnerability and Honesty
Cartia explains that she blew up on social media when her "content changed" and she started opening up about personal experiences, she told W Magazine. "I posted a lot about self-help and self-love and my own personal journey. I like being very vulnerable online," she explains. The response was "amazing" from her followers. "That's when I was like, 'There are not enough people speaking honestly about their struggles.' It can be toxic to just be like, 'Look at my life, it's perfect.' It's not. I struggle just like everyone else. And it's amazing that people relate to that.
Exercise, Meditation, and Yoga
Cartia has an inclusive approach to mental and physical health. "I try to stay on track with exercising, meditation, and yoga. If my body is exhausted, I'm exhausted and in a shit mood and I can't provide help to anyone else. My mental state is the most important thing for me," she told the publication.
Cartia loves a good soak in the tub, declaring in an Instagram post, "bath > shower any day I don't wanna hear any debates." How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
Cartia knows when to take a break and indulge in self-care. "Right now my main focus has been set to just simply looking after me. it's nice to be home in london & rest my little brain for a while. my past few weeks have been an emotional roller coaster so lately I've been taking some extra time to just slow the fffffff down, feel my feelings, release them, spend proper time alone (which I find I'm terrible at prioritising) looking for beauty in small simple things – going to the park, sitting in the sun 🌞 since coming home from travels I got serious with myself where I've not been looking after my mental health & highlighted the areas where I could be helping myself more… mediating & journaling again every day has been added back into the routine. What a silly girl to ever stop doing them, I feel slowly so much more calmness & presence and it feels nice to be taking proper care of myself again," she wrote in a 2023 Instagram post.
