Mental Health

Selena's number one priority is her mental health. In 2020 she addressed her bipolar diagnosis in a one-on-one conversation with Miley Cyrus on Instagram Live. "I went through a really hard season. It was my highs and my lows, and I didn't know what to do, so I couldn't control it. I would want to cancel things. It was just a tormented feeling. That's why, when I found out my diagnosis, it was just, 'Oh, okay, I feel a bit relieved, I understand a bit more.' I got second opinions. I went to doctors. I'm fortunate enough to be able to have people who can help me survive every day," she said. 


Blocking Out Social Media


Selena has figured out ways to protect her mental health. One of those is taking breaks from social media. She famously did this during her final breakup with on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. "I had just gotten my heart broken. I didn't need to see what everyone was doing," she told Fast Company. "Then there were those moments of not feeling positive about how I looked because of what I'd see on Instagram. Wow, I wish my body looked like that." 


Self-Love and Body Confidence

Selena has been very open about her body image issues. When she was attacked by trolls over a 2018 paparazzi photo of her in a bikini while boating in Australia, she had a response. She explained that when she was younger she  "had a teenager's body," she told Fast Company, but now "none of the sample sizes were fitting, and that would make me feel embarrassed," she said. "Although how unrealistic is it to expect a normal woman's body not to change?" She took steady aim at "the beauty myth—an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of flawless beauty."


Healthy Diet

Selena's diet is healthy and wholesome and involves "veggies and protein and brown rice or whole grains," her trainer and wellness expert Amy Rosoff Davis, who worked with her during her tour, told Byrdie. "I made a lot of rice bowls with veggies, protein, and avocado for Selena. It helped give her energy and stamina, which she needed to get through her shows. I also made healthy chicken salad with grapes and celery—it quenched her thirst and the protein filled her up."



"We always drank lots of water and had green tea when we needed a pick me up—it sure was exhausting at times," Davis added. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.


Interval Training

As for exercise Selena and Davis focus on "interval and circuit training—and building a strong core," the trainer told Byrdie. "My whole thing is toning mixed with cardio and stretching," she added. In a recent TikTok Gomez gives fans a glimpse of her grueling workout, doing moves like overhead arm raises, weighted squats, weighted leg lifts, donkey kicks, stretches, and crunches with a medicine ball.

Selena does "everything from Pilates to hiking to dance cardio to circuit training to yoga and Spinning—the list goes on," Davis told Byrdie. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
