She also opens up about her struggles with mental health.

Demi Lovato is a beast, and I mean that in the most envious way possible.
The singer spoke with The Cut about her typical morning routine, and I got winded just reading it. Behold the power:
I normally wake up around 8 a.m. I have a cup of coffee, and then I go to the gym. I like to do two workouts. The first one will be boxing for an hour or maybe kickboxing or jiu jitsu, and then I’ll strengthen and condition by lifting weights for an hour. I just started boxing like a year ago, and I feel stronger and a bit leaner. Because I work out first thing in the morning, I’ll have a post-workout meal, and that is a bowl of berries, some nuts, bananas, and kefir.

I am both inspired, and terrified. I think I’ll sit here with my donut, for now, but I might go on a walk later. Progress! Thank you, Demi!
In addition to sharing her intense morning routine, Demi is bravely speaking out about the importance of mental health, and her struggles with it. Six years ago she found out she is bipolar, and she’s on a mission to let others living with it know that they’re not alone.
Mental health is something that people don’t talk about. I think there is a lot of stigma around it because of the unknown. People don’t know about it, so they are afraid to talk about it. Something that I’m hoping to change by making this documentary is creating conversation and hopefully spreading the awareness of mental health, and that it is just as important as physical health.
To that end, Demi is the Executive Producer of Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health — a documentary you can watch for free online, and I highly recommend it.
Watch it, and then do 10 jumping jacks, and then take a nap. You deserve it! (Hey, becoming Demi didn’t happen in a day, so let’s be easy on ourselves!)
