Kristen Bell on mental health and parenting during the pandemic: ‘Search for the joy amidst the chaos’

Despite her Hollywood status, Kristen Bell can always be counted on to keep it real. From her marriage to Dax Shepard to her most important role as mom to their two daughters, 6-year-old Delta and 7-year-old Lincoln, the actress and entrepreneur is never not transparent about the highs and lows. It's little surprise, then, that she was an open book when discussing the challenges of parenting during the pandemic with Yahoo Life.

"Any advice I would have for other parents that feel like they're struggling is, lean on others," she says. "We're not doing this alone. 'It takes a village' is a cliché for a reason. Whether it's a phone call or a socially distanced, masked walk, we're social animals and we need each other."
