Camila Cabello recently took to her Instagram account to share a lovely picture of herself with her fans. However, more than the picture, fans fell in love with her long, meaningful caption, where she revealed that social media is not good for her.
The “Señorita” songstress wrote that she doesn’t use social media that often because it’s not good for her, adding that she doesn’t know how not to be affected by the negative things that people write about her. Therefore, the 22-year-old singer tries to avoid reading the comments altogether.
And even though she prefers to avoid the negativity spread by social media, she acknowledges its potential and how it can benefit people.
“I am totally aware that I can use this platform to help people even in small ways!” the singer wrote.
“So, to anyone on here who is struggling, which we all do sometimes cause we’re human!!! I super recommend taking five minutes out of your day to just breathe,” she continued.
The singer revealed that she has also been performing meditation and breathing exercises lately which has significantly improved the quality of her life.
The singer told her fans that she used be constantly trapped in her overthinking instead of living in the present, adding that focusing on her breathing helped her in a very positive way.
“I just thought I’d share something that’s really helped me; and hopefully it helps you guys!!!”
She also provided the correct way of performing breathing exercises, recommending her fans to dedicate five minutes per day to simply inhale five seconds through the nose and exhale for five seconds through the mouth.
Within a few hours of going live, the post amassed more than 1.9 million likes and over 12,000 comments where fans thanked the singer for sharing her stress coping mechanism with everyone.

Really wanted to send love to everyone on here - I don’t go on social media that much cause it’s not good for me, and I don’t know how to not be affected by what people say on here so I just don’t read it- but I am totally aware that I can use this platform to help people even in small ways! so to anyone on here who is struggling, which we all do sometimes cause we’re human!!! I super recommend taking five minutes out of your day to just breathe. I’ve been doing this lately and it’s helped me so much, i didn’t understand meditation before, or the concept of just noticing your breath, but I’ve been doing it the past few months and I can feel the quality of my life improving - I used to live so much in my head , constantly trapped in my overthinking and being in my head as opposed to the present moment- and lately just going back to my breath and focusing on it puts me back in my body and back in the present and helps me so much. Take five minutes out of your day today to just inhale for 5 seconds through your nose , and exhale for 5 seconds through your mouth - and super focus on your breath and how it feels coming in and out of your nostrils . Do it three times a day and whenever you feel yourself getting overwhelmed. I know lots of us on here are growing up and learning how to be human lol, and that can be intense and hard sometimes - I think some tools are really life changing and help you know how to do that better, so I just thought i’d share something that’s really helped me; and hopefully it helps you guys!!!! Anyway, LOVE YOU!!!! See you soon ????????????????
“Don’t be sorry for not being active, we do miss you but we also want the best for you,” one of her concerned fans wrote on the post. “You deserve more than the world can give you AND WE UTTERLY LOVE YOU.”
