Your mind and body are intimately connected. And while your brain is the master control system for your body’s movement, the way you move can also affect the way you think and feel.

Research has proven that physical activity can be even more effective than pharmaceuticals in lifting depression and sustaining a positive mental outlook. It’s hard to have good overall psychological wellbeing if we are neglecting our physical health.
