Apparently, hitting the treadmill gives her a boost. Katie Holmes revealed that workouts help her if she’s “stressed about something” when she spoke with Us Weekly at the Hoka One’s panel on Friday, November 1. “It clears my mind and I can look at it from a different point of view,” she noted. “It gets everything in perspective.”

Katie, 40, talked about how going to the gym and her mental health are connected just months after her split from Jamie Foxx. “I think it always makes me feel better because even if I do five minutes, it’s better than sitting on the couch,” she said. Katie added, “I’ve been running and working out since I was 11. It helps when you’re around a lot of different energies, you just run and get back to yourself.”

Jamie, 51, and Katie ended their six-year relationship in August, In Touch confirmed at the time. “Jamie and Katie have been arguing nonstop over his partying,” an insider said exclusively. “For months he’s been promising to calm his wild ways, but nothing’s changed and she’s finally come to the conclusion that she wants to be with a guy who’s more mature and ready to settle down. She also can’t keep an eye on him when he’s in LA and is fed up with doing the whole long-distance thing so gave him an ultimatum — either move to NY or it’s over!”

Nowadays, the Dawson’s Creek actress seems focused on raising her daughter, Suri Cruise, and working on her career, as always. But she still manages to find time to take care of herself. She said at the event that she’s “not afraid to take a nap during the day or anytime, really” and that “If I’m on set, I take a nap because it resets me,” she revealed.

“Sometimes, I need to be quiet for 20 minutes and come up with some gratitude,” Katie said. “I take some time and think, ‘How do I reach that goal? How do I fix that?’ There are roadblocks that I find and I just think sometimes, ‘Do I suck? Do I?’ Then, I take that time and just reset.” That’s really good advice for anyone, TBH.

“I used to put a lot of pressure on myself, like, I have to work out five days a week,” Katie continued. “But then I started doing the ‘I’m going to put this in self-care’ part of my life and enjoy it.” Good for her! We hope she’s doing really well, especially in the wake of the breakup.
