New research shows that our brains have to work a whole lot harder to avoid being a couch potato. This means that relaxation feels instinctual. Today we get to talk with Dr. Matthieu Boisgontier, who worked on this study, both about the results and what they could mean for us. Matthieu Boisgontier is a kinesiologist, a physiotherapist, and neuroscientist. He teaches and researches at the University of British Colombia and also works with KU Leuven in Belgium. You can read his experimental article here and find him on Twitter at @Mattboisgontier.
