What you will learn:

Alexi Pappas has reached high-level ambitions in fields of endeavor including athletics, film and writing.

Along the way, she has faced her own struggles with mental health. On her journey, Alexi has learned that the brain is a body part and, in times of setbacks, needs to be treated as such. Just as physical injuries need to be diagnosed appropriately and addressed by the right people who can support full recovery, so do mental health conditions.

Alexi pulls from her own experiences as a high-level athlete competing in the Olympic Games to create her own mental health regimen that supports personal wellbeing, mindfulness and high-performance. In this course, Alexi will discuss the practices she employs to protect her mental wellbeing and take a proactive approach to reaching challenging goals.
