Busy Philipps has been open about her experiences with anxiety. "I grew up in a family where mental health issues are . . . we've got 'em! I've had that since I was a kid — racing thoughts, unable to get control of my thoughts, spinning out into paralysis of not being able to do anything and crying hysterically about it, or just feeling totally helpless," she said in the July/August issue of Health magazine.
To help mitigate those feelings, Busy makes exercise a top priority. She told POPSUGAR in February that her daily trampoline-based workouts at LEKFit are nonnegotiable. "If you are a person, who the cloud settles in your brain, and you can feel it, and you get the anxiety, or depression, or whatever . . . the routine takes over, and so it's not even a question," she told POPSUGAR. "It's like, 'Well of course, I don't want to get out of bed,' but the routine sort of forces you to go."
In fact, she doesn't view exercise as a means to look a certain way — she told Health she got rid of her scale — it's more for the mental and emotional benefits. She also told the magazine that she's also done acupuncture for anxiety and takes CBD and THC gummies.
