We live in a world of more: do more, be more, give more. The thing is, oftentimes, we run ourselves down trying to achieve everything. Take it from celebrities. Now more than ever are they taking the time to focus on their mental and physical health. Just look at these seven celebrities who recognized they needed to spend time devoted to self-care.
Millie Bobby Brown
Ever since Stranger Things Mille Bobby Brown has been in high demand. With her busy schedule of appearances and shooting project, including more seasons of Stranger Things, Brown is quite the busy bee. But she is just 15 years old! Most of us at that age had a hard time balancing homework and friends, let alone a full-blown career. Back in the spring of 2017, Brown canceled an appearance saying in an Instagram video, “I’ve worked too hard, and I have to rest.” Yes, girl, go be a teenager!
Demi Lovato has always been open and honest about her mental health struggles. She has spoken up about her eating disorder and substance abuse. And she has also been really honest about how hard she works to overcome them. Demi took time off to enter a rehab program. She also reached out for help; she works with her manager to create an “amazing schedule” to help her out.
Selena Gomez checked herself into a rehabilitation center in Tennessee where she stayed for 90 days to rest and receive therapy. The pop star and actress felt depressed and anxious and said choosing to get help was “the hardest thing I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done.”
