Lena Dunham Wins Instagram

Lena Dunham Wins Instagram

‘It ain’t about the ass, it’s about the brain’

Here is yet another reason why we love Lena Dunham and why the haters, who’ve turned on her because they’ve ignorantly assumed she’s ‘selling-out’ for her recent interest in exercise, just need to hate less.

For Lena and countless others, it’s not about getting super skinny or landing the cover of Sports Illustrated. It’s not about creating her very own ‘Squatspo’ Instagram account in which followers can feel bad about their own, more realistic jiggly bits. Lena is inspiring us for her healthy, mind-body approach to exercise; ‘it ain’t about the ass, it’s about the brain’. Having taken to a number of different kinds of exercise of late, Lena can now vouch for the ways in which it’s helped her with her anxiety, depression and OCD.

Her latest Instagram post is making waves for all the right reasons.

Promised myself I would not let exercise be the first thing to go by the wayside when I got busy with Girls Season 5 and here is why: it has helped with my anxiety in ways I never dreamed possible. 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. It ain’t about the ass, it’s about the brain. Thank you @tracyandersonmethod for showing me the light (and @bandierfit is where I bought my Florida mom inspired workout look.) #notsponsored #stillmedicated

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
