Alexi Pappas: Staying Awake to Our Pain
In this conversation, Kate and Alexi discuss,
The difference between stress and trauma
The discipline—and joy—of sheer effort
Good pain vs. bad pain and how to stay inside the uncomfortable for a bit longer
The highs and lows of realizing your dreams
How viewing mental illness as an injury not only destigmatizes depression, but offers tangible next steps toward healing
Too often professional athletes fall into the pure motivational speaker category. But this conversation with Alexi gently threads the needle about what is possible if you stay a little longer in uncomfortable situations when even getting out of bed feels like a win.
There is so much wisdom we can glean from Alexi’s discipline and willpower.
CW: suicide, depression, mental illness
