Move: How the New Science of Body Movement Can Set Your Mind Free
Although you probably already feel that you should be more active (as our Western culture is becoming more sedentary all the time), this book is unique in expounding reasons far beyond the purely physical ones that most “move more” proponents espouse. Yes, more movement is great for the body, but it’s essential for your mind, your emotional health, and so much more.
After decades of hearing about movement for weight loss, this is a refreshing and much more compelling set of arguments for adding activity to your life. The book recommends several types of movement, supported by solid scientific studies. Walking and weight training we know about, but also essential are dancing, stretching, breathing, and resting (meaning a change in activity level, not absence of activity).
Don’t despair about trying to fit in extras to your already full days; the author offers feasible suggestions for small changes to make right now, and any increase will give real and tangible benefits. Ultimately, this book is hopeful and encouraging, as well as compelling. You will finish it with an entirely new appreciation for your amazing body and a resolution to give it––yourself––more of the movement it needs.
