Let’s get physical

Oliver Burkeman focuses on tiny changes with the biggest impact. This month, small active tricks to boost emotional resilience

The idea

When you’re facing a problem that’s psychological, it’s easy to assume the solution must be psychological, too. Try finding new ways to think about the issue. You may consult friends, read self-help books, or write in a journal, but it’s easy to forget that the brain is also a physical organ, so it’s deeply affected by what’s happening elsewhere in your body. The simplest solution to a psychological problem is sometimes to switch your focus to the physical: make a bodily change, and a change of mind will follow.
