Justin Bieber is putting himself first in a very positive way. After canceling the final leg of his ‘Purpose’ tour on July 24, the singer posted a heartfelt Facebook message to his fans Wednesday explaining that he was taking a break to focus on his well-being and his future.
“Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be sustainable…I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind, heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be, eventually the husband I want to be and the father I want to be,” Bieber said.
The singer is just one of many celebrities who’ve taken breaks from the public eye recently to focus on their health and take time to recharge. The breakout star of ‘Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown skipped a Collective Con appearance in late March citing exhaustion as the cause. Kanye West and Selena Gomez also canceled international tours recently to deal with health conditions. They all have the right idea: a host of research shows that we perform better when we give ourselves enough rest and recovery time. And while Bieber may not always be the ultimate celebrity role model, we’re glad he’s taking the time he needs to get to a healthier place.
