'It's not good for me': Camila Cabello admitted she doesn't go on social media very much in an effort to avoid reading negative comments
Taking to her Instagram account, the pop star said Friday: '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.'
However, she is aware she has the power to make positive change.
Camila shared a breathing technique that she's used when getting too trapped in her thoughts.
'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. (sic)'.

She explained: '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.
'Inhale for five seconds through your nose, and exhale for five 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.

Anyway, LOVE YOU!!!! See you soon. (sic)'
