Effect on Emotions

  • I'm still practicing mindfulness. I still struggle in the moment if I get upset.
  • Mindfulness has helped me when I'm away and thinking about things. 

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I use breathing a lot when I'm training, when I'm running or biking. My wife and I have the oura rings and we pay attention to our breathing and heart-rate and restfulness.
  • We are data junkies and we pay attention to our breathing at night and also while training.

Bullying Story

  • In high school there was a kid who bullied me verbally and physically and one day I had enough and I grabbed him in the hallway and I pushed him against the wall and I said, “if you ever come near me again I'll beat you up.” He never touched me again. 
  • I think the worst bully in the world is yourself. I think about my thoughts and how I talk to myself. It's a daily struggle for me.
