What's the one ritual you practice/follow every day?
Aside from my workouts, which I get in at least once every single day, another ritual that helps me keep my mind sharp is my daily nap. With all the physical demands on my body, it’s just as important for me to take care of the mental fitness. So I hit Calm’s “Rain on Leaves” for about two hours each day.
What ritual brings you the most happiness?
A ritual that brings me the most happiness is my family’s Taco Tuesday dinner. Throughout the busy season, family meals where we are all together are hard to come by, so celebrating this family ritual has become one of my favorite things to do – as you can see on my social media! Family time is always a top priority for me because they are my reason for everything I do. They are the happiness this all leads to.
Do you use rituals to help you achieve your goals?
My daily workouts are rituals. That time in the gym is something that’s become sacred to me because it helps me perform at my best. I’ve done it over such a long period of time now that my body doesn’t feel right without it. My goal is to always be at my best, and to always push to be even greater. My workouts help me maintain the physical side of that.
What was a big setback in your life? What did you do to come back from it?
Setbacks to me are opportunities to grow. An opportunity came in 2014 in the NBA Finals when I wasn’t able to do everything I wanted to due to muscle cramping. After that, my trainer Mike and I set out to find a solution so we could do our best to avoid that situation down the road. Now here we are, five years later with our own company, Ladder, to offer that same product and support to everyone.
When you're feeling drained, what do you do to recharge?
Something that always helps me recharge is music. No matter what mood or how I’m feeling, I’m always able to find music to connect with that gets me where I need to be. And of course, my Ladder product is always a good pick me up!
