As you know, Lena Dunham of the HBO series “Girls” has taken over from Woody Allen as the poster patient for psychotherapy.
By her own admission Dunham began therapy as a child and has continued it. She has dutifully taken the medications that were prescribed for her anxiety and despression.
Now, however, she has found a better way to treat her emotional problems: regular physical exercise.
The Daily Mail has the story. It quotes a remark Dunham posted on Instagram:
Last month the comedic-actress told her Instagram fans that regular exercise 'has helped with my anxiety in ways I never dreamed possible'
Not exactly a full-throated endorsement of therapy.
To that Dunham added:
'To those struggling with anxiety, OCD, depression: I know it's mad annoying when people tell you to exercise, and it took me about 16 medicated years to listen. I'm glad I did,' she captioned a photo of her figure in leggings and a yellow sports bra.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
