“As athletes, many times we see ourselves as just that. We judge the success of our lives based on what happens between the lines, as if that’s our only purpose. But what happens what all of that is taken away? After I tore my ACL early last season, I had to learn who I truly was, and what made me happy outside of baseball. I learned to take time for myself, to value the things that make me feel alive, and to see my purpose in life as more than just a guy who plays a game.
The most important thing I have learned over this journey is consistency. In order to make real strides with mental health you must work as consistently on your mental game as you do your physical game. Taking even 10 minutes to journal and meditate everyday has changed my life.”
