Why are you so Passionate about working with LIVIN?
I want to do everything I can to break the STIGMA around mental health!

What does #ItAintWeakToSpeak mean to you?                                                                                                                           Its breaking the perception that we need to be strong and bottle up our emotions, it aint weak to speak = reach out and talk to someone!

3 things you do for your personal wellness
I’m all about wellness and mindfulness, its the biggest contributor to me and my physical performance – three things I do; Get some mindfulness; I use Buddify every night, sometimes twice a day to get in 10 or so minutes of quiet time… this helps me refocus and keep grounded.

Exercise and Nutrition; SO IMPORTANT! Being active helps me keep a clear head, and eating healthy helps with my energy levels, even just a light walk in the mornings helps me keep my personal wellness in check!

Do something for yourself; As an athlete I ask so much from my mind and body everyday, its so important for my personal wellness to take some time for myself and give back. This changes every week from a massage, float pod session to sometimes its just taking myself out to breakfast and reading a good book!
