Celebs, they’re just like us, and they, too, battle with their mental health. While it can be challenging, there are ways to deal with it, and Beth Behrs shares how she manages her anxiety.
Well-known for her role as Caroline Channing on the hit series 2 Broke Girls, Beth Behrs shares how she’s managed to deal with her anxiety. Landing the role on a popular TV leads to fame, and that can magnify your anxiety tenfold!
Dealing with anxiety is a massive feat for anyone, and fame can only amplify its effects. Here’s how Beth Behrs spends her time managing her anxiety.
Spends less time on her phone
Our phones are the first thing we see in the mornings and the last thing we see at night and an escape tool whenever we need! Beth tries putting her phone down to spend time playing with her dogs and reading!
Do things that encourage self-love
Loving yourself is the best thing you can do for your confidence. Beth says loving yourself is pretty empowering, and she does this by making others laugh. She encourages you to do things to make you feel good about yourself so you can love yourself more!
She meditates twice a day
Being on 2 Broke Girls made her panic attacks worse; co-producer of the show Whitney Cummings introduced her to the art of Transcendental Meditation to help calm her down. It helped Beth cope with her anxiety so well that she practices meditation for 20-minutes twice a day!
Even Beth gets a little lazy sometimes, but past experience with bad panic attacks has encouraged her to get moving, even if it’s just a 10-minute walk! If you don’t want to leave the TV, make sure you’re moving around the room!
She also encourages dancing, many people think it’s just an activity for a night out, but it’s a great form of exercise that you can do around the house. But if you want to force yourself to take it seriously, Beth suggests paying for a subscription, and the guilt should get you to use it!
She works with horses
Beth started working with horses in 2015 with Cassandra Ogier, who helps people dealing with emotional crises by allowing them to work with horses. It’s helped her so much that she’s recused her very own horse that she meditates with.
The work that she did with Cassandra Ogier led to the founding of her program for sexual assault survivors, SheHerdPower. The women’s work with Cassandra Ogier and her horses helps them deal with their trauma and lack of trust.
“Whatever small steps you’ve taken to improve your life — from making yourself a smoothie, to taking a walk to adding intention to your day.; producer” Beth Behrs.
Dealing with anxiety is no easy feat, but it’s still a condition many live and manage successfully. Beth shows how dedication has made her anxiety manageable.
