You probably do this yourself in the shower.
Ashley Caldwell is one of the best female freestyle skiiers in the world. The 27-year-old holds a world record for the hardest acrobatic trick ever landed by a female. She is also the only female to ever land a trick called "The Daddy," which is a quadruple-twisting triple backflip. She loves getting so much air, but it can definitely rattle her nerves. So what does she do to calm her fear while waiting at the top of the hill?
She sings and dances it out.
"Aerials is very scary. ... I've crashed a lot. I've been injured and I, and I know what's at stake and I know what I'm doing is really serious. Um, so, so that fear definitely helps me, you know, be like, what do I need to do right now to make sure I'm successful?" Ashley said. And for her, that means "joking around and laughing and dancing and singing."
Ashley is a member of USANA's "Winner's Circle," a group of high-performance athletes who prioritize every aspect of their health to be the best in their game — while also managing their personal lives. Ashley wants to motivate you — and show you how — to live your best life.
"I feel like the most success I have is when my mental space is like, 'I love doing this and this is so fun.' ... If I'm in a bad headspace, I just start singing and dancing and it kinda changes your mood so that I can be ready for competition," Ashley said.
