We all know that working out is good for our bodies. But what about the runners high? The rush of endorphins we get after a big lift or pumping spin session. Movement has a massive impact on our mental health - a release, a distraction or a way to build yourself up when times get tough. So we’ve bought together three top minds on how to optimise movement to help your mental wellbeing.
