Having some good days and some not so good days, Kendall wondered just how many people out there were feeling the same.
“I have been doing a lot of thinking during quarantine, mostly about mental health.”
“I have really good days, where I wake up in the morning and make a list of what I want to get done. I’ll be super productive.”
“Then the days that I don’t really have as much going on, I tend to get a bit anxious,” the reality TV star continued. “To calm myself down I usually read a book or meditate, or even sit outside and enjoy nature or something. I’m off and on.”
