    Name: Kelly McGonigal: "The Joy of Movement"
    Date: November 16, 2021
    Time: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM CST
    Event Description:

    Join the Pruitt Center as they host best-selling author and TED speaker Kelly McGonigal, PhD, for a presentation on how to harness the power of movement to increase happiness, resilience, and social well-being.

    People who are physically active are not only physically healthier. They also have a stronger sense of purpose and experience more gratitude, love, and hope. They handle stress more effectively and feel more capable of facing the challenges in their lives. They feel more connected to their communities and are less likely to suffer from loneliness or become depressed. These benefits are seen throughout the lifespan and around the world.

    In this presentation, learn how and why physical activity promotes resilience, belonging, and even meaning in life. From the biological, including how exercise remodels the brain to make you more receptive to joy and social connection; to the psychological, such as how movement is intertwined with identity, self-expression, and self-efficacy.

    Kelly McGonigal will also give practical guidelines for maximizing these benefits, and how to make movement part of your psychological self-care. The session will also include Q&A and fun, accessible opportunities to try out the joy of movement wherever you are.
