Constantly having to deal with people making comments about her body, Kris Bernal knows how difficult it is to navigate society's unrealistic body standards. In 2017, the actress shared, "If I reason out with them, they say that I'm being defensive or guilty. There's no way around it." She's always reminding her followers to be kind and to stop body-shaming.
In September 2020, Kris wrote, "I am strong and healthy. And that's far more important than what's visible to the naked eye. Really, tbh, I see so much online hate today, every day, everywhere. So much pang-lalait. Just another reminder that so many of us struggle on a daily basis, and wounds aren't always visible to the naked eye. We should all be mindful of this in our dealings with others. If you don't know a single thing about what a person is going through, just respect. Be mindful of your single hateful comment. Words can kill. You have no idea how fragile someone's mental state is so BE KIND."
In case you missed it, in August 2020, Kris started posting videos featuring her different fitness routines. The first #KRISMADEMEDOIT vlog is a 30-minute, full-body, HIIT workout! This is perfect for people who are trying to "burn calories, shed unwanted pounds, and develop muscles from head to toe." It has 30 different exercises, you guys, and each one needs to be executed for 45 seconds.
