The 24-year-old recently completed a questionnaire for Thrive Global about her heath, and she revealed that she’s made significant changes to her life lately. For starters, she’s keeping her hands to herself when it comes to using her cell phone.
“I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone. It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling,” she admitted. “Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me.”
Selena said the last time she felt burned out was “three months ago, before I took a hiatus to take care of myself.” These days, however, she’s intently focused on herself. Her morning routine consists of a simple regimen — “drink water, stretch, and take a deep breath” — and when she finds herself with free time, she uses “self-affirmations in cooking or napping.”
Though Selena’s seemingly not as addicted to her phone these days, her social media dominance hasn’t fizzled out in the slightest. Instagram shared its 2016 Year in Review today (December 1), which proves Sel’s still the undisputed queen of the app.
In addition to sweeping the most-liked photo AND video categories, Selena’s also the most-followed celebrity, with a whopping 103 million followers (the top five is rounded out by Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and Kim Kardashian, respectively). She also has eight of the 10 most popular celebrity photos, with her sultry Coca Cola ad claiming the top spot — it racked up an astonishing 5.9 million likes.
Last week, Selena made her first major public appearance at the AMAs since announcing she was taking time off from her Revival world tour to deal with “anxiety, panic attacks, and depression” stemming from her battle with lupus. She also broke her social media silence to share a heartfelt note to fans, writing, “I’ve finally fought the fight of not 'being enough'. I have only wanted to reflect the love you guys have given me for years and show how important it is to take care of YOU. By grace through faith.”
