Kristen resisted discussing her mental health for years, fearing what others would think of her. However, she discovered that her mental health improved after she finally resolved to open up about it and seek help for her negative thoughts.

Exercising Is Key For Her Mental Health

Kristen has also admitted that she exercises a couple of times a week, usually a combination of cardio, circuit training, and Pilates, to aid her mental health.
