“I feel like I’ve discovered a lot of things about myself,” said the 2019 US Open champion. “If I hadn’t had this time away from the slopes, I might not know about my passion for spirituality or martial arts, or even painting. It’s all because I have no identity.
“I complete myself by exercising. I want to have other hobbies, otherwise I will go crazy. That’s what happened to me when I had a mental break in 2021 and I didn’t like how I felt. Having this tools will help me not only in my life, but also on the job, I will enjoy it more. For example, I was last year, and I think it will improve. Mental health has a very important place in my life, it All in all, things are not going well in that area, both physically and emotionally.”
