By  | 

Just like us, celebrities also deal with certain personal issues that make them anxious. And there are numerous ways of coping with anxiety. Busy Philipps shares how exercise helps her meet these challenges.

 

I highly recommend 2-4 margs and then rolling around in the sand for fun.

Exercise Helps

Aside from margaritas and rolling on the sand, Busy Philipps has a healthy way of dealing with personal struggles.  The mom of two writes in an inspiring Instagram post, wherein she shares how her exercise routine helps in keeping her physically, emotionally, and mentally fit.

 

“How much sweat is too much sweat? Someone asked me if people like my sweaty Instagram stories and my feeling is that, honestly, I don’t really care all that much. I post those for myself, as a fuck yes for showing up.

 

I have anxiety and I have a tendency towards depression but I have found if I sweat like this, EVERY SINGLE DAY, I feel better, I’m calmer, I’m a better mom and those fogs of anxiety or sadness seem a little lighter. I’ve been picking my skin less, engaging in less binge eating and I’ve just felt better about myself. (And obvi I go to therapy too.)

 

My goal is not some perfect bod (I like chips and salsa and margs too much for that). My goal is to feel the best I can in my body and my brain for the rest of my life.”
