It can be easy to get caught up in all the superficial reasons we exercise: to fit into a favorite pair of skinny jeans, get ready for a beach vacation, or lose weight before a big event. But Kourtney Kardashian’s latest gym selfie is a good reminder that how you look shouldn’t be the only reason you exercise.
While Kourtney does look amazing in her barre-inspired gym outfit, we love how she captioned her post even more. “Working out is one of the only things that helps when I’m feeling anxious,” she writes. It’s true – in addition to making you all-around healthier, exercise helps release stress and boost endorphins, meaning you’re often only one workout away from a good mood. The next time you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or discouraged, take Kourtney’s advice: go for a walk, stretch with some easy desk yoga, or pop on one of our 10-minute video workouts to raise your heart rate and sweat away stress.
