The Joy of Movement
Many of us chase happiness in life but happy states are fleeting anomalies largely out of our control. If you’re experiencing true joy right now, swim and revel in it, but know that soon it will be gone.
Get a good night's sleep. You’ll feel good.
Eat the foods you know are right for you. You’ll feel good.
Sit less, move more, and exercise. You’ll feel good.
Feeling good doesn't fix all the other challenges in your life, but it always helps. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet the author of a new book, The Joy of Movement, an exploration into the biochemical, neurological, and emotional health benefits of using your body for what it was designed to do. To move.
