Tai chi can make you happier.

Tai chi can make you happier. Research conducted at the Massachusetts General Hospital in the USA suggests that, without the benefits of any additional treatments, adults who suffer from mild to moderate depression and anxiety can experience a significant reduction in the symptoms of depression if they engage in the Chinese martial art of tai chi. A pilot study involving 50 Chinese-Americans showed substantial improvements among volunteers who took part in a 12-week programme of tai chi instruction and practice.
