Why Running for Better Health Really Works

By Genevieve Cunningham

Running is not easy. It's taxing on both the lungs and the muscles. It's exhausting. It pushes you in body and mind. It makes you sweat and makes you sore. For some people, these little hardships are worth it. But for others, these are enough to keep them far away from the track. But what about those on the fence? Those who wonder: Is it really worth the effort to run? Or can I skip it? If you're interested in great health, take a look at why running may be worth the extra effort.

It Keeps You Moving

Running forces you to move. Obviously, right? But it's more than the act of running. It's more than physical fitness. When you really get into running, it's an entire culture. It's a group of people who enjoy moving and exercising and getting better. It's people who know the best running courses and the best shoes to buy. It's a lifestyle, and it's one that's constantly moving. Running keeps you moving physically, but it also keeps you moving with motivation.

It Burns Calories

Running is a real calorie burner. The trick to really increasing the calorie burn is to run fast or to lengthen the distance. Either works! Find which is more enjoyable for you, and incorporate a few harder days into your routine. You'll soon be burning more calories and working toward your dream body -- all with a healthy running habit. 

It Creates Healthy Habits

Running is a great habit. It requires discipline and perseverance. It improves your physical well-being. And it also helps to create other healthy habits. You're probably not going to be an avid runner who also smokes. You're probably not going to eat a heavy meal and then try to run. You're probably going to understand the importance of water. One healthy habit -- in this case, running -- can help spiral other habits into a positive direction. Start with one, and the rest will follow.

Running is hard. It takes work! But it's really good for the body, mind, and your life. Start small and learn to love a little movement. If you can make running a habit, you may be able to enhance your body, health, and lifestyle like never before.
