For a good portion of every society running just seems pointless. Its not really understood why runners continue to subject themselves to a sport where most of the time, the effort outweighs the benefits. But for runners who experience that high, know how breaking past emotional and physical boundaries can make them feel accomplished and content. However, studies show that there are a number of physical and mental benefits that even the most dedicated of runners may not be aware of.
Recent studies show that running just 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week actually decreases your chance of premature death by as much as 50 percent. It turns out you literally can run for your life – in a positive way. Improving cardiovascular health, runners benefit from a more properly functioning ticker.
Running at certain intensities and distances also increases our fat burning capabilities and the sweat that is generated by a good run removes toxins from our bodies. Serotonin is also produced when we run, which contributes to that “runners high” that we often hear about. Serotonin contributes to heightened feelings of happiness and contentment.
Increased levels of daily energy, weight loss and decrease of illness are all additional benefits enjoyed by regular runners.
