Her book explores why movement is a powerful antidote to the modern epidemics of depression, anxiety, and loneliness. Their conversation focuses on the importance of movement for moms, offering practical tips to remove barriers to exercise and sharing how movement helps moms become more resilient to stress, feel more connected to those around them, reduce postpartum anxiety and depression, and so much more.
