Lena Dunham Shares Inspirational Sports Bra Selfie

Pin It
Lena Dunham is working on her fitness, but it's not because bikini season is right around the corner...it's because of the positive effect it has on her mental health! The Girls star shared a photo in a sports bra after a workout with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, explaining that exercising has greatly helped her anxiety.

"It ain't about the a**, it's about the brain," the actress wrote of why working out is important to her. The 28-year-old has been open about her own struggles with anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder in her memoir Not That Kind of Girl. We think it's awesome that she's bringing awareness to how exercise can be as therapeutic as medication for people suffering from mental illness...plus, it's a great stress buster for anyone and everyone.

Tracy reposted Lena's sports bra selfie, adding: "Regram of my stunning strong superstar student stylin my locker room! Gotta go to her feed to read her important words of support! @lenadunham my vote for most important influencer talent award! Love you darlin way to motivate."

We totally agree...and now, we're off the gym ourselves. Thanks for the motivation!
