3 Great Reasons to Run!

By Donna Stark

Your hairstylist does it, your coworker does it, and even the teenager living down the street does it, so why aren't you doing it too? Running isn't only one of the most popular, and readily available, forms of exercise out there, it's also one of the best workouts you can choose for your body. Why? Well, let's take a look at some of the health benefits you can get by adding a quick run to your daily routine. You may be surprised by how impactful it can be.

Aids in Weight Loss

If you are looking for one of the best and most efficient forms of exercise to burn calories, running tops the list! Lace up your shoes and hit the road for some fresh air, head to your favorite treadmill at the gym, or relive your high school days with a jog around the track ... it doesn't matter where you run because those calories (and eventually pounds) will drop off faster than you can imagine. Just remember to follow the proper safety precautions while running outdoors. Wear reflective clothing, adhere to the rules of the road, and let somebody else know when you expect to return and where you are planning on running.

Reduces Stress

It's been shown that exercise can have a profound effect on the levels of stress and anxiety a person deals with every single day. By releasing the body's "feel good" chemicals, boosting moods, and improving sleep, running can make a huge difference in the way you manage your days. So, if you are feeling down, stressed, or a little bit anxious, grab your sneakers and head outdoors. With as little as a 30-minute jog, you can change the trajectory of your day.

Ensures a Healthier Future

Are you interested in improving your present and future state of health? Running can do that for you! Running can improve the health of your heart and lungs, reduce the risk of obesity-related diseases, and increase the strength of your bones. Before you head out for your run though, make sure you warm your muscles up first with some stretches and light movements.

It's Time to Lace Up Your Shoes

In addition to all the benefits above, running is also a great way to stay connected with others, so go ahead and join those who are already running around you. Who knows? Running may even become your favorite way to stay fit!
