ANALIS BAILEY: Gabby, your most recent post on Instagram was a photo that said, "Spend time with people who are good for your mental health." And you often post messages about taking care of your well-being and sanity. And speaking to the latest conversation in the sports world on mental health, Naomi Osaka takes a stand to protect her own mental health. How important was this decision for you? And how do you think this affects other athletes?
GABBY DOUGLAS: Well, honestly, I - jeez, I feel like I'm under a rock because, like you mentioned, I was just preoccupied with myself because I really came from the last Olympics games one Number with me. And so I just get away with it and really heal myself, heal my mind and body.
And these days I fast my cell phone. I don't use social media very often because social media has harmed me, harmed my personality in some ways. So I cut myself off from social media and my phone for years and really just kind of got back to who I am.
As for Naomi, everyone knows what to do to fix themselves, to heal themselves, and everyone is different. And for me I know inside - as an athlete we've been through so much. You feel like you need to take a step back, then this is what you need to do.
