Summary, etc.:
"The bestselling author of The Willpower Instinct introduces a surprising science-based book that doesn't tell us why we should exercise but instead shows us how to fall in love with movement"-- Provided by publisher.
Exercise is health-enhancing and life-extending, yet many of us feel it is a chore. McGonigal shows how movement is intertwined with some of the most basic human joys, including self-expression, social connection, and mastery-- and why it is a powerful antidote to the modern epidemics of depression, anxiety, and loneliness. In learning why movement is integral to both our happiness and our humanity, readers will discover what they can do in their own lives and communities to harness the power of movement to create happiness, meaning, and connection. -- adapted from jacket
