6 Times Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson Were the Best-Dressed Duo

6 Times Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson Were the Best-Dressed Duo Despite their public displays of affection and the fact that the were recently spotted carrying a sex bench (which, apparently, was a "gift for a friend"), Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne have never officially confirmed their relationship status. The two stars were first rumored to be dating in 2018, after getting close on the set of their movie, Her Smell. Since then, they've frequently been spotted together running errands, cuddling at fashion week, hitting up afterparties — all while coordinating their style. Some days they both opt to wears blazers. Other times, it's as if they said "Let's wear fun pants today!" They'll even wear similar stuff while working out.

The relationship between Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes is still a mystery. The "Havana" singer's feelings about social media, however, are crystal clear. She's already been open about removing social media from her phone for her mental health. But over the weekend, she shared how she's been using her free time now that she's not on her phone as much.

Before getting into meditation, Cabello felt "trapped" by overthinking, she explained. "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," she shared.

ICYDK, the ability to ground yourself in the present moment is one of the most powerful benefits of meditation. When you meditate, "you feel a little more present with yourself all day," Lorin Roche, Ph.D. author of Meditation MadeEasy, told us in a previous interview. "Most of the time we're in the past or the future," added Saki F. Santorelli, Ed.D, director of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester and author of Heal Thy Self. "Yet the present is where pleasure and intimacy occur."

There's science to back this up, also: A consistent meditation practice can help you become more mindful, which can in turn help to lower your cortisol (aka stress) levels, according to research from the Shamantha Project at the University of California, Davis. Researchers measured participants' mindfulness before and after a three-month meditation retreat and found that those who returned with an improved ability to focus on the present also had lower cortisol levels.

But the key to reaping the benefits of meditation is consistency, as Cabello pointed out in her post. "The more you practice mindfulness, the more present you are in all the moments of life," Mitch Abblett, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and author of Growing Mindful: Mindfulness Practices for All Ages, recently told us.

Not sure where to start? The "Señorita" singer has you covered: "Take five minutes out of your day today to just inhale for 5 seconds through your nose, and exhale for 5 seconds through your mouth," she suggested. Focus on your breath and how it feels moving in and out of your body, she explained. "Do it three times a day and whenever you feel yourself getting overwhelmed."

In the tiny cavities, air and vessels come so close that oxygen can enter the bloodstream and release carbon dioxide. In smokers, the elasticity of the vesicles breaks over the years, so that less air can fit into the lungs.
