Selena Gomez Reveals She ‘Took 90 Days Off’ from Her Phone During Hiatus
The singer, who announced back in August that she would be taking time off, made her way back into the spotlight after walking the red carpet at the 2016 American Music Awards.
However, she admitted that she’s not the same person she used to be. In fact, she’s completely turned her life around. Gomez opened up about the changes she made in her life since rehab, including how she rarely uses her phone nowadays.
“I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone,” she explained in Thrive Global’s questionnaire. “It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me.”
These days, her morning routine includes drinking water, stretching and taking a deep breath. Gomez, 24, also said that “staying healthy (mentally, physically, emotionally) and learning new things” is what gives her energy.
She concluded the interview with a quote that helps get her through tough times. “You are not what happened to you, you are what you chose to become after what happened to you,” she said, similar to the advice she gave her fans during her emotional AMAs speech.
