Kristen Bell Opened Up
About the "Big Difference"
Exercise Makes In
Her Mental Health.
She shared a video
on Instagram showing
herself doing a series of
cardio and strength moves.
Bell can be seen doing weighted squats
(with dumbbells), renegade row push-ups,
boat pose, and burpees in her video.
I don't work out to get a certain body shape. I work out for my mental health. And I notice a BIG difference when I do and when I don't [work out]...When I don't, I'm sad, irritable, anxious, and lethargic. When I do, I'm content, motivated, peaceful, and energetic, Kristen Bell.
But remember: You don't have to dial
up the intensity to reap the brain-
boosting benefits of exercise.
Taking a walk stimulates the release of serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, and endorphins and makes you feel calmer and happier, Wendy Suzuki, Ph.D.
If you need recs for your own quarantine home workouts, Bell invited followers to
