Move : how the new science of body movement can set your mind free / Caroline Williams.

Summary

Summary:

A veteran science journalist explores the latest research on the relationship between brain health and physical activity and discusses how the simplest movements can reactivate our bodies and help relieve anxiety and depression and improve memory and creativity.
For our earliest ancestors who hunted and gathered, movement meant survival. Our brains evolved to reward physical activity. What happens when we stop moving? Today, on average, we spend around 70 percent of our lives sitting or lying completely still. Our sedentary lifestyle is not only bad for our bodies, it can also result in anxiety, depression, and a lower overall IQ. Williams explores the research behind brain health and physical activity. She shares the good news: even the simplest movements can reactive our bodies and reframe our relationship to movement. She reveals easy tricks that offer a more stimulating and productive way of freeing our caged minds to live our best life. -- adapted from jacket
