Demi Lovato made headlines not only for her impressive singing career but also for her mental health struggles. Although she has since recovered from past eating disorders and depression, Demi maintains an advocacy position for people going through the same issues as her.
Part of Demi’s recovery and overall health, she says, is using daily affirmations to stay inspired and strong. If that advice isn’t enough, fans can also buy her book, which contains 365 affirmations in Demi’s own words. She also sells a workbook that goes with the book, inviting readers to do their own daily journaling and self-reflection.
By sharing her life story instead of glossing over the negative aspects, Demi inspired trust in her followers and encouraged them to look within for the strength they need to overcome challenges. Judging by its rave reviews, Demi’s affirmation journal struck a chord with fans and survivors who find solace in writing down their thoughts.
But as effective as the pop star’s advice might be, it’s not new. There’s a reason people have long kept diaries and documented their daily lives, and it’s not to find fame or get published.
