Welcome to Episode 79 of The Madhappy Podcast. This week we are excited to welcome professional skier, Alex Ferreira, onto the show to learn more about his mental health evolution as an Olympic athlete.

We kick things off as Mason asks Alex about his training routine, as Alex speaks to the tools he utilizes on a daily basis, such as meditation and affirmations, to support his mental health (6:39). Alex talks about the evolution of his mindset leading up to competition (8:27) before the two get into a conversation about the feelings that come after wins and losses (13:59).
