“If I’m not feeling good mentally, then it will jeopardize my physical health, and they go hand in hand,” she told Prince Harry at the three-minute mark. “And, so, for the past couple of years, I’ve just been prioritizing that, listening to my body, and I’m in such a better place.”
Kim continued, “It would be unrealistic for me to expect to go out there and land an amazing run, learn a new trick if I wasn't feeling good mentally. And I can’t expect myself to perform at my peak when I’m doubting myself, and I’m feeling negative emotions.”
The athlete also credited her coach for helping her in stressful situations, adding, “I have such high standards for myself. I beat myself up. So really, my coach is always just reminding me that calm down, it’s good, there’s always tomorrow, but also acknowledge the progress you have made today.”
While Prince Harry has been interviewed on multiple occasions, this is the first time he’s led a celebrity interview. All things considered, he seemed like a total pro.
