On the outside, it looks like musicians are living the dream, and while that may be true for many, they also have to abide by demanding schedules. One day, a musician will be in one state, and the next day, they will wake up in an entirely different state. Beyoncé is familiar with this feeling. According to BolaVIP, the “Crazy In Love” singer has embarked on eight tours throughout her solo career, of which five have been worldwide.
The constant jet setting took a toll on the Grammy-winning musician mentally and physically. In August 2021, she told Harper’s Bazaar, “I have not always made myself a priority. I’ve personally struggled with insomnia from touring for more than half of my life.” According to the Cleveland Clinic, only about 10% of the population suffers from insomnia, which causes “disruptions in how you feel or function because you aren’t sleeping well or sleeping enough.” From touring, doing press, and being a mom, Beyoncé’s life is a constant to-do list.
Although the “Cuff It” singer has admitted she has neglected her well-being in the past, she has been working on focusing on what is best for her. She told the outlet, “But I know that to give the best of me, I have to take care of myself and listen to my body.” Taking time for herself has not stopped her career as she “Runs the World.”
