Eilish has battled body image issues. According to the young star, her body "was the initial reason for my depression when I was younger" and the situation worsened as she got older and began cutting she told Vogue UK. "I think that the people around me were more worried about it than I was, because the reason I used to cut myself was because of my body," she added to Vanity Fair. "To be quite honest with you, I only started wearing baggy clothes because of my body."


You Do You

Billie believes people should do whatever makes them feel good about themselves, even when it comes to plastic surgery. "It's all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f**k it – if you feel like you look good, you look good," she told Vogue. 


Be the Best Version of Yourself…Today

"People always say, 'How would your younger self feel about you now?' And that's a good thing to think about in some cases, but I also think you shouldn't try to be a person that your old self would like, and you shouldn't try to be a person that your future self is going to be. You should be exactly who you feel like you are and want to be in that moment, otherwise you're going to go insane," Billie told Vogue. 


Prioritize Sleep and Wake Up Early

The early bird gets the worm, according to Eilish who used to be a late sleeper. "It makes the day so much longer," she told Vogue. If she can't sleep, she uses a meditation app. 


Eat Vegan


Billie went vegan in 2014. "There were a lot of reasons," she wrote in a 2018 Tumblr post about why she opted to ditch all animal products. "I love animals and I just think there's no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave animals alone. Damn. Also, I'm lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin and my skin is VERY aware of that."


Stay Away From Substances

Eilish maintains a sober lifestyle, despite never struggling with addiction. "When I was growing up and I was around my group of friends back then," she said, "and they would all be drinking and smoking and doing drugs and whatever, I think because of the way that my personality is—I'm a very strong-willed person, and I think at the time I was very alpha—I'm coming to realize that I may have felt a feeling of superiority."


Don't Starve Yourself


Billie once battled an eating disorder. When she was just 12, Billie started taking weight loss pills and developed a pattern of disordered eating. "Five years ago, I wasn't really eating. I was, like, starving myself," she told Vanity Fair. "I remember taking a pill that told me that it would make me lose weight and it only made me pee the bed—when I was twelve."
