This week I have another bonus episode to share with Sam Eisenstadt, a former D1 Football player, the Defensive Coordinator for the Örebro Black Knights, and my friend from growing up! Sam talks about his struggle with anxiety and how this affected him as a young high school football star. In college, Sam made the difficult decision to leave the team his Junior year, and he opens up about the identity crisis he went through at the time. Like me, Sam is a huge fan of yoga and even got his certification to teach the practice! He explains the various ways he incorporates mindfulness into his daily life and the importance of meditation. You can learn more about Sam by checking out his Live and Learn series @livelearnseries and by following his personal Instagram @sameisenstadt.
