Gwen Stefani first broke out as the lead singer of No Doubt. In a 2012 interview with Marie Claire, she talked about wanting to find more balance in her life. "I've got myself in a lot of trouble by not saying no. This last year I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that, and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up. I have learned to delegate. It still looks awesome, but did I pick out the buttons? No, I didn't. I missed the last two Fashion Weeks because they were when school started; I can't miss the first week of kindergarten."

Sarah Michelle Geller is a '90s icon, starring in the series Buffy The Vampire Slayer and All My Children, and films I Know What You Did Last Summer and Cruel Intentions. Last year, Gellar gave an interview to Shape, where she talked about her wellness. Geller says that she is working on putting herself first. "I've been flying a lot and it's the old adage of put your mask on first and then you put your child's on," she says. "And it's counterintuitive because as a parent, you just want to take care of your child, but the truth is if I don't take care of me, I can't take care of you. So that, to me, is self care."

You gotta do it morning and you have to do it at night.This is going to serve you well as the years go by. Don't forget to get down here and get your neck. Oftentimes we do the face and we forget that our face is attached to our neck and that also needs to be cleaned and needs some love."

In 2015, DiCaprio opened up about his career in an interview with Wired. "I don't think anyone really gets used to being recognized around the world. It kind of feels like a videogame at times, especially with paparazzi and people following you and things of that nature. But it's part of who I am now. It's part of my life as long as I choose to do what I do as a profession, and I love what I do. I think I survive because I don't limit myself. If there's some experience I want to have or a place I want to go, I do it. I think that's how I bring some semblance of normality to my life."
