Hollywood star Kristen Bell has credited exercising for helping her feel physically and mentally "strong", and says it's the perfect outlet for her "depression and anxiety".
Bell told Women's health magazine "I've always felt mentally strong because I'm adept and can banter and hold my own in a good conversation. But I've never felt physically strong. I felt waifish or pregnant. And I'm loving the fact that if we ever get attacked by ninjas, I would be a valuable asset".
Bell praised heading to the gym as something that is helpful for those suffering from "depression or anxiety", as the endorphins released during physical activity can help boost a person's mood. The 39-year-old "Frozen II" actress has upped her exercise regime in recent months, she hasn't changed her eating habits much, and eats carbs regularly because she needs the energy to learn her lines, reports female first.co.uk.
