Vanessa Hudgens lives for the moment. The former High School Musical star makes sure she takes a break from technology instead of just letting life pass her by. The Spring Breakers actress went one time five days without checking her phone messages. She believes people would embrace live and not depend so much on their phones.
She told the October issue of Marie Claire magazine:
”If you’re always worried about being on your phone, then you really are missing out on everything that’s happening in front of you.”
The twenty four year old sends out some advice, telling people not to worry and to just take each day how it is. She added:
”Nothing is real except the present. If you’re worrying about the future, it’s completely irrelevant because it hasn’t happened yet. And the past – there’s no need to dwell on that, either.”
However, Hudgens was able to look back her childhood, looking at her parents situation to make ends meet, working as hard as they could, helping her achieve her dreams of being an actress.
”Money was a big thing. My parents drove me up to L.A., which cost a lot because of gas, and took out loans so that we could move from location to location to be close to L.A.
”The family definitely struggled … They were very supportive of me. They gave up a lot so that I could get to where I am.”
