Episode 1 What is Movement for the Mind? - Dr Bernadette Dancy

In this episode, I introduce the concept of movement and clarify the differences between different types of movement and exactly how much of which type is needed in order to get mental health benefits. I also discuss why we need to move at all and challenge you to question whether the way we currently promote exercise for mental health is actually a good thing.
