Exercise & Movement

Physical exercise is critical for our health, but it also helps us rejuvenate our energy and it generates bodily neurotransmitters called endorphins that make us feel good – an effect often called “runner’s high”. A growing body of research shows that even small amounts of frequent exercise is sufficient to give us this performance advantage.

It’s a scientific fact that that our bodies play a critical role in giving us the energy and stamina we need to perform at high levels in our academic, professional and personal lives. Yet, many people have trouble finding the time for even a brisk walk, a quick run, or a short yoga session. Eating high-quality foods can also be challenging amid the fast-pace of modern life and the prevalence of processed and packaged foods.
