I was reading Paul Thagard’s article at Psychology Today recently on Why Tai Chi Feels Good. It resonated with me and I thought it might resonate with you as well.

Paul discusses the Cognitive Effects, the Emotional Effects and the Social Effects of Tai Chi. Here is an excerpt from the article where Paul discusses the Cognitive Effects of Tai Chi:

You need to keep track of both arms, both legs, and hips, with novel movements such as forming a hook with a hand. Moving slowly requires more concentration than a faster, jerkier movement. In addition, the movements are accompanied by controlled deep breathing: when hands go up or towards the body, and out when they go down or away from the body.
