THE JOY OF MOVEMENT How Exercise Helps Us Find Happiness, Hope, Connection, and Courage

by | Read by Kelly McGonigal

Personal Growth • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Exercise may carry the weight of chore and prescription, but in Kelly McGonigal's reframing, it's an accessible way to enjoy more self-expression, social connection, and mastery. She presents her refreshing views with a combination of lighthearted innocence and rock-solid confidence. Her tone and vocal clarity create an inviting atmosphere for absorbing her ideas and taking another look at our sedentary habits. One surprising finding she shares is the 31% improvement in life satisfaction people report when exercising regularly. She says vigorous and regular exercise works like marijuana and some antidepressants by increasing the endocannabinoids in our systems. But studies show the temporary runner's high is more than chemistry: It's learning that we have the courage and discipline to take our lives to a higher place.
