Parent Ed : Kelly McGonigal on The Joy of Movement

The MVLA Parent Education Speaker Series presents:

Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D.

The Joy of Movement: How Exercise Helps Us Find Happiness, Hope, Courage, and Connection

Tuesday, April. 21, 2020 - 7:00 - 9:00pm | Live Online via Zoom

Now, during the shelter-in-place, physical exercise and movement can be an amazing coping mechanism.  Join us as Kelly McGonigal explores why physical exercise is a powerful antidote to the modern epidemics of depression, anxiety, and loneliness.

People who are physically active have a stronger sense of purpose and experience more gratitude, love, and hope. 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, apply to every socioeconomic stratum, and appear to be culturally universal.


In this talk, 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; to the social, including how moving with others harnesses human instincts for teamwork, trust, and interdependence.

Audience:  Parents and educators of students grades K - 12.
