The mind-body connection to recover faster

From Sunday Morning, 11:30 am on 19 May 2024

Ellen Langer is a professor of psychology at Harvard University and her most recent book, ‘The Mindful Body: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health’, presents, among other things, several studies on mind-body unity and its potential to improve health and well-being.
