From Athlete to Alchemist: Mental Resilience and Self-Discovery with Lo Myrick | Ep. 84

In this episode of Order Within I sit down with Lo Myrick, a peak performance and mindset coach. We discuss Lo's journey on personal development, overcoming struggles with body dysmorphia, taking personal responsibility, and the impact of psych K.

Our discussion covers the harmful effects of hustle culture and the necessity and benefits of self-love, compassion, rest, and the concept of 'inner glow'.

We also discuss impactful strategies such as affirmation, meditation, and taking control of one's thoughts to improve well-being and performance with an emphasis on being proactive rather than reactive.
