In 2019, Camilla reminded fans that the bodies seen on social media aren't always as real as they seem. "I'm writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media," she wrote in an Instagram story. "They're constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that's reality, and everyone's eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, and suddenly they think THAT'S the norm. It isn't. It's fake. AND FAKE IS BECOMING THE NEW REAL." She added that "a completely unrealistic view of a woman's body," is promoted. "Girls, cellulite is normal. Fat is normal. It's beautiful and natural."
Celebrate Your "Curves and Cellulite and Stretch Marks and Fat"
In July, Camila was the subject of body shamers after a photo of her exercising went viral.
"I was just running in the park, minding my own business, trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy. And I am wearing a top that shows my belly and I wasn't tucking it. 'Cause I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time!" she explained in a body positive TikTok video she titled "I luv my body." "I reminded myself: being at war with your body is so last season. I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat and we gotta own that baby!"
Don't Spend Too Much Time on Social Media
During an interview with NME, the star revealed one of her "good mental health choice" tips: stay off social media. "When I feel myself going on Instagram, I feel gross. I feel sick. Like, I wanna delete it because it makes me too self-conscious and it makes me have this weird feeling. I'm like, eugh. It's like [there's] something in me that's like: 'That's not how I want you to live your life,' you know?"
Eat Lots of Veggies
During an interview with BBC Radio, Camila admitted that her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes, is a big influence when it comes to her healthy eating habits. "Shawn has influenced me to be healthier. I was not healthy at all before. I never ate vegetables before. Just like, easy vegetables like cucumbers or cold carrots with cesar. Which I wouldn't say are hard vegetables," she said, admitting she never ate broccoli before her beau came into the picture.
Meditate for Your Mental Health
In 2020, Camila revealed that meditation has become a regular mental health exercise for her. "Meditation has changed my life in the last few months," she wrote on Instagram. "I didn't share this with you guys at the time because honestly I was just trying to be okay, but I was experiencing severe anxiety. it was meditation- it was practicing every single day multiple times a day that has been healing me, and, more than just helping me manage strong emotions like anxiety and stress, it's making me a better human. not only does it help in times like this with stress and anxiety, meditation is the practice of strengthening habits like empathy, love, and compassion- making you feel more connected to not only everybody around you , but living beings in general like animals, plants, and the earth, which is a living being, itself."
