Professional Basketball Star Jarnell Stokes on Mindset, Nutrition, and Paying It Forward

It is an honor to interview professional basketball star Jarnell Stokes about the importance of healthy mindset, nutrition and paying it forward!

His most recent tour in the NBA includes playing for the Memphis Grizzlies and the Denver Nuggets. Jarnell learned a lot from his late 2016 ankle injury and shares with us how it contributed to his successful summer league performance with the Portland Trail Blazers.

His natural athletic ability, practice of yoga, clean nutrition and focused mindset led him to being in “the zone” this summer and playing his “A” game. He is excited to be heading to China to join the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association with the goal of a championship season!

I am impressed with his on court and off court intentions. Jarnell shares his experience about his summer 2017 youth basketball camp and the values his grandmother instilled in him about the importance of giving back!

We both agree that youth sports contribute to establishing great lifestyle habits and a healthy mindset for life.

Thank you Jarnell for a great interview! Safe travels to China.
