Dancing is certainly no joke! We’ve written other stories about contestants who suffer injuries during their time on Dancing With The Stars. Season 29 champion Kaitlyn Bristowe frequently posted about her own aches and pains on Instagram. However, Season 28 champion Hannah Brown is still feeling the effects of her injuries, even more than a year later.
Hannah Brown Gets Candid With Fans In An Instagram Live Session
“I think this political climate and with COVID has been hard for all of us and me too,” Hannah shared with fans in an Instagram story while out for a walk. “Usually when I’m struggling, dealing with my mental health, I can go to working out. Well, for the past five months, maybe almost six, I haven’t been able to work out like I used to, and … it really brought me down because I didn’t know another way. I’m either zero, 100. All in, nothing. And I definitely let it get me down. But I’m really starting to finally get that motivation back and I want to share it with you guys because I think a lot of us can relate to going a long time without working out and sometimes it feels impossible to start again.”
The Season 28 winner went on to say that she understands what it feels like to be out of shape.
“I am still going to the doctor and trying to figure it out but I think a lot of my body hurting comes from some issues that started on Dancing With the Stars and I just kept going from zero to 100 — I’m either all or nothing — and pushed it too much to where I now have, like, some issues that I am having to deal with,” she confessed.
Being Under Such Intense Scrutiny Doesn’t Help Matters
If you’re familiar with Hannah Brown, you know beauty pageants were once a big part of her life. And when you compete on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, you’re under heavy scrutiny at all times. That alone has been tough on her mental health, especially now that she can’t exercise the way she wants to.
Hannah concluded the video by saying she’s going to listen to her body and take breaks when she needs to. One day she hopes to be able to return to her old exercise routine. With love and support from friends, family, and her new man, fans hope she will be able to return to the life she once knew before long.
For now, keep up with Hannah Brown and the rest of Bachelor Nation on their Instagram pages. How do you feel about Hannah’s road to recovery? Did you have any idea she was still in pain? Let us know in the comments.
