Resources Mentioned In This Show
“Honestly introversion led me to what I am doing now because it is more energy giving for me, like I let go” (7:36)
“You get so caught up in the work life and you lose sight of like being a real human and being compassionate towards yourself. At least I do, I have.” (18:17)
“And the [adpative] athletes come in and they train, and I think honestly we get more from them than we give. Because they are just so brave, and nothing really holds them back. And they really don’t sweat the small stuff.” (23:32)
“With any injury there comes this mental vulnerability of, ‘okay am I ever going to be able to do x,y,z again?’ And unbeknownst to us, sometimes the way that we have thought before kind of takes over and we stop doing the things that we love… and that becomes kind of an excuse” (44:58)
“Be more aware of where your mind goes, and what your body is doing. And that awareness can add life to your years, and actually years to your life probably. Just from moving a little bit more, thinking more positively, thinking about growth, which adds less stress to your day.” (58:21)
