8 Amazing Benefits of Running

We all know almost all forms of exercises are beneficial to our body and you don’t really need any more reason to hit the gym, but still, here are 8 health benefits you’ll get from the most common and popular workout of all time – Running!

Matters of the heart

As an intense cardio workout, running strengthens your heart because it works harder to circulate your blood and regulate your breathing.

Fight the stress

Research has shown that running helps reduce anxiety and boost serotonin levels. Regular runners find the repetitive motion to be meditative and calming.

Live long

As a runner, you are less prone to sickness and disabilities as you age. Even when you’re older, you’ll be more active.

Shed the pounds

Get in the mood

If you’re feeling blue, running can help. The activity gives you what is called a “runner’s high”, thanks to the endorphins that are released while you workout. If there’s ever a good addiction, this is it.

Big brain

Running increases the blood flow to your brain, which in turns increases the nutrients and oxygen supplies to your noggin. This will make you more productive at work, increase memory strength and recollection abilities. It also helps the formation of new nerve cells and blood vessels – so your brain actually grows as opposed to shrinking like it usually does when you get older!

Sleeping beauty

Because it’s such a physically exerting activity, you’ll fall asleep quicker and more soundly, and wake up less in the middle of the night.
