The former Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps explains how she’s become a better mom to her kids…
The 37-year-old actress revealed if she undergoes a gruelling fitness regime, building up a sweat “every single day” she instantly feels “better.” Busy is a mom to her two daughters Birdie (8) and Cricket (3) with her husband Marc Silverstein.
Here is what Busy Philipps said about how she tricks her anxiety:
“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 f-ck 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.”
Busy is truly feeling better, since she states:
“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. ????”
The lesson is that she is doing it for herself and that is the key for everything in life.
You can’t die from anxiety, but it might feel like your having a heart attack. Mild cases of anxiety, depression may lead to an early death. Sleeplessness is a proven factor and a surefire way to break down your body’s defenses against stress. Syptoms of an anxiety attack are chest pain, flushing skin, a racing heart, and difficulty breathing. If you are having any of these, walk outside, get fresh air, slow down, rest, get away from what is ever stressing you out.
