This blog is based on world renowned psychologist Kelly McGonical’s research – read her book: ‘The Joy of Movement’
If you want a positive mindset then exercise. People who are physically active are happier and more satisfied with their lives. This is true whatever the activity.
It’s not about fitness level. It is about moving. During physical activity, muscles secrete hormones into your bloodstream that make your brain more resilient to stress. Scientists call them ‘hope molecules.’
The brain rewarding movement makes sense. The body is built to move. Sitting is the new smoking.
To quote Kelly McGonical: “There’s no objective measure of performance you must achieve, no pace or distance you need to reach. You just have to do something that is moderately difficult for you and stick with it for at least twenty minutes. That’s because the runner’s high isn’t a running high. It’s a persistence high.”
Get moving. NOW!
