Kardashian shared the way therapy has been a huge help

In an April 2020 interview with Health magazine, Kardashian opened up about how she’s dealt with her struggles with anxiety. Therapy has been so helpful, she said, that she looks forward to it.

“For the past three years I’ve been going to therapy,” she explained. “Once a week I go to a double session. I look forward to it every week! Having that awareness, I find that I can almost catch things before they become a bigger deal. When those harder moments do happen, I think, ‘What’s the lesson that I’m supposed to be learning?’”

She added, “My workouts are key, too. And I go to church once a week, if I can. I go with friends, and we go to dinner afterward. I’m such a homebody; it’s important for me to force myself to do something social!”

Kardashian’s workout routine consists of “maintenance” efforts. “As far as my workouts, I feel really good. I notice better results when I mix it up between trainers or do boxing, so I don’t get burned-out or bored,” she noted.

Kardashian revealed the goal for creating Poosh

Kardashian took her interest in healthy living and applied it to a lifestyle website that she could share with her fans. She said of her eco-friendly outlook, “It’s my lifestyle. But I’ve also learned so much from Poosh.”

Her goal for Poosh, she said, was to create a space for women that’s not just for those interested in health and wellness. “I felt like there wasn’t really [a resource] for a woman who is healthy and into wellness but also sexy and cool,” Kardashian noted. “There is this image out there of the woman who cares about eating organic and feeding her kids that way that is somehow uncool. That’s not the case, and I wanted to make something that embodied my passions and interests.”

She’s working on her family

Kardashian is a famous eco-warrior and she’s working on converting her family to making greener decisions. She confessed, “I still search their refrigerators! I say, ‘OK, guys, what’s it going to take for everyone to stop using plastic water bottles?’”

She continued, “I’ve pretty much gotten everyone switched over to boxed water or glass. But when I go to my family’s houses and I see nonorganic milk or fruit or vegetables, it really bothers me — like, ‘Why do you not think [organic] is better?’ It really irks me.”

The Poosh founder is also moving on from her reality show roots, sharing that she’s “taking less time with filming.” She added, “I try to make myself available to my kids to really be a mom. And I want to be in charge of my time and schedule in order to do the things that are bringing me happiness.”
