Buoyant: How Water and Willpower Helped Wella to Channel Aaron and Hayley Peirsol narrates how Wella Hartig stumbled into the healing power of exercise and ultimately guided both of her children into remarkable athletic careers--resulting in seven Olympic medals for Aaron and world-class distance records for Hayley.
Discovering that intense exercise grounded her, despite ADHD and anxieties, Wella instinctively enrolled her two children, Aaron and Hayley, into sports. Despite a series of emotional and financial challenges and at least one serious mistake, Wella has managed to instill values and compassion in her children. Buoyant offers guidance to other parents navigating competitive sports and touches upon cutting-edge neuroscience that relates exercise to mental health. It is a clear lesson that we have the power to change our own lives.
