Demi opened up to Self magazine about what she has been through the past few years, and how she has learned and grown from her experiences.
Working out and staying fit the healthy way is really important to Demi.
“I’ll run a few miles or bike from Santa Monica to Marina del Rey. I also love boxing or, when I’m sore, yoga. Sometimes I’ll do full-out meditations, where I chant with my instructor. It helps me connect to how I’m feeling.”
Regular exercise can not only help your physical health, but also your emotional health. And it is important not to over exert yourself, like with anything, you don't want to go overboard. It's better to stick to a regular routine.
Demi went on to say:
“I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. Unlike a person who doesn’t have these problems, I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down.”
Being confident in who you are and not letting the opinions of others affect your life is important.
“I want girls to know that it’s OK when they grow up and their body changes. I want them to be aware that certain things they might do to lose weight can be dangerous — life-threatening, even.”
”You can choose to work towards happiness or not. I used to expect it to come to me, but it takes more than seeing a therapist once a week. I make time for myself and meditate.”
Demi has found a great support system of friends and seems to be doing great!
