SPORTS BROADCASTER CRYSTAL ARNOLD TALKS HEALTHY LIVING
Happiness is not just a fleeting emotion that comes with moments of grandeur. Happiness is a decision. It’s the realisation that you are in control of your life and the choices you make – be it your chosen career path or daily rituals such as exercise and diet – will impact your overall state of mind. This is something Crystal Arnold learnt early on in life and it’s part reason for her success, along with hard work of course.
“I just love the outdoors and can think of no better setting then spending a portion of my week on a golf course. It is my happy place.”
“If the cricketers are not playing they are probably training and that’s contagious. One of the benefits of touring with the Proteas is that you not only tap into their active lifestyle outlook but if you’re up early enough you can share some hotel gym treadmill space with a Morne Morkel or a Kagiso Rabada. Believe me If they are running next to you, there’s no way you’re giving up midway.”
“From Sportsmen whom I have had the privilege of seeing up close and also had the chance to tap into their thought process through our conversations and interviews, I’ve learnt that experience is invaluable and defeat does not define you.”
“My dreams as a girl growing up in Eldorado Park were different to those around me, bigger than circumstance allowed, but knowing where I wanted to go was important. What helped me was growing up in a household where I was instilled with the values of ‘You can do anything’ and ‘You can go anywhere.’ If I do have an ‘off’ day or even when I am standing in the middle of the Olympic Stadium where Bolt has just run, I try to remember where I’ve come from, where I am in that moment and where I’m headed.”
