Camila Cabello Shares Swimsuit Photo Making Waves
Camila Cabello is making waves in her swimsuit. In one of latest social media posts the Havana singer shows off her incredible body in a bathing suit while on vacation with friends. "Xoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxo," she captioned the Instagram post, which included a photo of herself swimming in the ocean. Over the years, the singer has been extremely candid about her struggles with mental health, including anxiety. Here is how she deals with it and keeps herself healthy and happy.
She Opened Up About Her Anxiety
After attempting to live with her suffocating anxiety in her late teens and early twenties, Camila finally opened up about it. "It was something I just lived with. I was used to having functioning anxiety that got really bad every half a year. Then I started opening up to friends, and I realized how much suffering and neuroses are normal, and that we're all bats**t crazy in our own way, but when it keeps you from having healthy relationships and being more often than not in a relatively stable place, that I needed to seek out some therapy. Talking about it really helped me realize, 'Oh, I think this is making my life harder than it is for other people,'" she told Cosmopolitan UK.
She Goes to Therapy Weekly
Camila sees a professional weekly. "I love therapy!" she told the publication, adding that being open and honest helps treat her anxiety. "I think pretending is a form of psychological torture and brings the most anxiety. We do that so much in our society and culture. We're constantly hustling and putting on a smile when we don't feel good," she said.
She Added Healthy Habits
During the pandemic, Camila picked up healthy habits, like spending time with her family, riding bikes, and cooking. "Obviously, this is a huge luxury, but if I felt like that again, I wouldn't force myself to do anything and I wouldn't pretend because who is that for? If I'm not being honest, then I don't know what I'm bringing to people, you know?" she said.
She Know When to Delete Apps
Camila knows how to protect her mental health from trolls. "If I see something that hurts my feelings, I'll just violently delete my apps. And then I'll miss Instagram and TikTok and I'll redownload them again, and then it's just a vicious cycle that repeats over and over. But yeah, social media is interesting. It's got good and bad."
She Protects Her Privacy
Camila also protects her privacy and tries to control her own narrative via social media. "There are varying degrees of discomfort [with fame]. The beach thing, paparazzi stuff and people filming me, is really uncomfortable,' she says, referring to a similar experience at a beach in her home town of Miami, where photographers clamored to get a bikini shot of her. 'I was in the ocean and there were six [photographers] four feet away from me. It was so wrong and just weird. [But] I adjust. I don't go to those places any more or put myself in vulnerable situations like that. It's fine, I don't feel like people are going to be interested in my body forever."
