Description

A New Scientist best book of 2021 Shortlisted for the ‘Sports Performance Book of the Year’ Award for 2022 Did you know that walking can improve your cognitive skills? That strengthening your muscular core reduces anxiety? That light stretching can combat a whole host of mental and bodily ailments, from stress to inflammation? We all know that exercise changes the way you think and feel. But scientists are just starting to discover exactly how it works. Hailed as a ‘delight’ by The New York Times and ‘fascinating’ by Women’s Health, Caroline Williams explores the emerging science of how movement opens up a hotline to our minds. Interviewing researchers and practitioners around the world, Move! reveals how you can work your body to improve your mind. As we emerge from over a year’s worth of lockdowns, there is no better time to take control of how you think and feel.
