She's About Body Positivity

Cabello famously posted a clip on TikTok about body positivity. In the clip, Cabello says, "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 in. Because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time, and I was like, 'Damn.' But then 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," she concluded. "We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretchmarks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby."

She Doesn't Get Affected By Haters

Being in the public eye, Cabello has had to deal with social media, and all the criticism and negativity that comes with it. However, Cabello says that she doesn't let it get to her. In an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Cabello described an incident that lead her to embrace this mindset. "I had my belly out, I didn't know anybody was taking pictures of me," she said. "I was like, you know what, this is normal. It's like my weight is gonna go up and down, also we have these crazy beauty standards from freakin' Instagram of people that are photoshopped or if they're not photoshopped, it's not every woman's body."

She Takes Care Of Her Mental Health

Cabello is all about her mental health, and makes sure that she takes care of herself. Cabello tells Glamour that she began taking care of her mental health during the start of the pandemic. "I by no means am trying to complain," she says, "but it was such a thing of, 'I have to get onstage tomorrow and I'm performing at this big thing,' or whatever. 'I want to do a good job. How do I do that when I feel nervous?' I did this without being like, 'Am I even happy right now? Do I even feel healthy?' I didn't have the space to ask myself those questions. I'm still working a ton now, but after quarantine I'm able to be like, 'You know what? Right now I'm just not happy. I need to change something.'"

She Stays Healthy

Cabello tells Glamour that having a body-positive mindset actually helps her stay healthy and commit to her wellness routine. "When I'm having negative thoughts about my body, that's actually when I'll want to binge-eat cookies, and then I have a stomachache," she says. "It's this weird psychology: The more I love my body, the more I actually want to take care of it…. As long as I'm healthy and working out and feel good, that's the best I can do. There's no point in trying to have another kind of body." Cabello's body-positivity has allowed her to stick to her fitness.

She Finds A Work-Life Balance

Cabello said on Instagram that she struggled to find balance between her professional and her personal life, and that prior to the pandemic, she felt very burnt out. Cabello shared that the pandemic helped her find a balance. "Nowadays I never feel guilty about making time for time off because I know that without rest, and time for joy, laziness, and play, I will feel burnt-out, stressed, sad, and exhausted and I won't be able to do the work I want to put out into the world," she says. "In a culture that wears exhaustion and business as a badge of honor, remember we are just animals who were meant to be roaming around the forest eating, pooping; and making babies; and in the way our society is built, overwork is literally killing us."
