Kevin Hart on COVID-19 parenting, family training, and accident recovery
The coronavirus pandemic has continued Kevin Hart, his wife, and four children Inside together – and he says it gave him a new appreciation for his family.
In an interview with USA TODAY Monday, the comedian, 41, said the shutdown had “put the spotlight” on his loved ones and gave him time to reconnect with them.
“Through the epidemic, I was really able to benefit from parenthood. Benefit from the husband’s role more, because I have never come home so long. At all! Because of my job, I haven’t come home for so many weeks or weeks of period.” “I have never been able to have dinner with my family and talk to my family as much as I have been able to during the course of this pandemic, and it has made me realize some of the things that I have missed, and some things that I have not put as importantly that I should possibly do.”
Hart, who is collaborating with the meditation app vacuum For a series of vigilance-focused content, he says his family has adapted to the challenges of quarantine by sticking together.
“The way my family and I could adjust was to depend on each other at this time and do our best to support each other and do our best to be aware of each other’s minds – and constantly check, ‘How do you do? you are OK? How do you feel? If it breaks, what can we do to receive it? He said, “It was just making sure we were all in and not giving each other a chance to fall or slip and fall through the cracks.”
Hart, whose collaboration includes Headspace Episode “meditate with me” “Mindful Runs” are two interactions where viewers are guided on a virtual tour with the comedian, and his children also say they participate in his fitness routine. Son Hendrix, 13, accompanies him in his morning virtual school pre-school workout in the morning, and his daughter Heaven, 15, also joins him.
“I usually start around 5:00, 5:30, and he’s just starting to say, ‘I want to wake up, I want to train with you, Dad,” Hart explained, adding that his children’s interest in health is something that is “very proud of them.”
“It is something that is not forced. I do not force my children to do this, so their admiration and commitment to it, that is a big problem,” he added.
In addition to running, Hart says he enjoys other cardio exercises at home, such as working out rowing machines and cycling, but he says he’s still dealing with some lingering issues yet. A car accident in September 2019 left him in the hospital for several days.

There’s still another 3 or 4% that every now and then you are reminded like, ‘Oh yeah, it’s I hurt my back, just let me slow down for a second, ”he said.“ But that’s good! I’m in an amazing place, and I’m lucky to be where I’m physically. I’m lucky to be walking and generally alive, so I don’t take any of this for granted. “
Hart added that the accident made him realize “how everything can end in the blink of an eye.”
“(It was) an amazing experience realizing that you are not in control, quite. You may think you are in control, but you are not,” he said, adding that he is now trying to take every “second of my life and I am really grateful to her … Life is so precious.”
