Abstract

The field of psychosomatic medicine has clearly established the idea that how we think and feel will affect the functioning of the body. What we do with our bodies may also affect how we think and feel, but this somatopsychic approach is less well established. This article aims to review what is known about the effects of physical activity on psychological function, and raise awareness of this research amongst psychologists.
