“I have been doing a lot of thinking during quarantine, mostly about mental health,” she said.
Jenner went on to address her own mental wellbeing and said there have been some “really good days”.
“I wake up in the morning and make a list of what I want to get done. I’ll be super productive,” she said.
“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.”
Jenner explained that her “bad days” can be difficult.
“I will say my bad days aren’t the greatest,” she said.
“I’m trying to get through them, I’m trying to find my little remedies and not feel alone.”
Concluding her video, the 24-year-old explained she hopes others will feel inspired to share how they’re coping in lockdown.
“When I decided to join this challenge, I was very excited. I wanted to connect with people and I wanted [them] to feel like they weren’t alone either,” she said.
“I hope that you can join me and let’s take the stigma off of mental health. I think we should all connect and feel like we’re in this together.”
