Move More Feel Good
Being inactive is linked to lower mood, less energy and more depressive symptoms. We all know movement is great for our emotional wellbeing and mental health, but we may still need some extra motivation to get active!
This special event brings together RED January founder Hannah Beecham and clinical-academic expert Dr Brendon Stubbs to help you feel good, by bringing more movement into your life in a way that works for you.
Together Dr Brendon and Hannah will explain the latest science on movement and mental wellbeing, including how this varies with the seasons. They'll explore the power of personal goals and share inspiring stories about how people are getting active in January.
This is your chance to start, rekindle or continue your favourite ways of being active. You'll get lots of practical advice, including the importance of re-framing what it means to move, and the power of community.
This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on 5 Jan 2023.
