When Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian posted a picture of herself to Instagram last week, one user commented that she looked pregnant. Going live on a Zoom chat with her Poosh team overnight, the 40-year-old addressed the moment and how she protects her mental health from cyber bullying.
“I commented back and said, ‘This is the shape of my body. I gained a few pounds over this quarantine time and I love my body and I’m proud of my shape and I’m obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body.’ I don’t think I look pregnant at all,” Kardashian shared in a new video for Wellness Wednesday. “We’re all shaped differently and that’s my body and I’m proud of it so that’s how I respond to the negative comments. It’s not always easy.”
“Sometimes I can be more sarcastic but I think kill them with kindness is my motto and try not to let those comments affect you and if they do and you know that, then don’t look at comments. I know it’s easier said than done but really try to keep the positivity for your mental health,” she continued.
Talking about how she quietens a noisy mind – something we struggle with, especially in quarantine – Kardashian admitted it was easy to concentrate on the not-so-nice things that are said about her. “There’s so much positivity as well and I think we tend to focus on the negative and I notice for myself that the negative questions stand out to me where I just want to respond to those people sometimes even more than the positive ones, which isn’t always fair.”
On a lighter note, the reality star and her sister Khloe Kardashian posted a video to YouTube recently discussing wellness in quarantine. And one of the biggest revelations about the sisters spending time inside? They don’t wash their hair.
“I’ve only been doing this since quarantine time, I just rinse my hair with water after [I’m done working out],” explained Kourtney. “Especially since I haven’t been seeing anyone, I rinse my hair with water, then it has my hair’s natural oils and then I can slick it with a silk scrunchie so that it [doesn’t] damage my hair. That’s just been my jam,” she said before noting it was a lot thicker.
