5.6 Years Added to Your Life

According to a recent study out of Denmark, women who jogged regularly increased their life expectancy by 5.6 years. But long-term benefits shouldn’t be your only motivation to hit the pavement. Here are some immediate perks to those who run:

  • Mental Clarity

  • Increased Energy

  • Improved sleep patterns

  • An increase in serotonin, dopamine and endorphins

  • Feelings of relaxation and happiness (thanks to the brain chemicals listed above!)

  • Improved self-esteem and confidence

    I thought I’d share this short, sweet article outlining the benefits of jogging. Hopefully this will motivate you to get up and get moving. And remember, just because this article highlights jogging, it doesn’t mean you have to go out and run a 5K today. There are many other wonderful and beneficial forms of exercise. In my experience as a life coach, the most important thing to do is to find a form of exercise that works for you!

    Here is an encouraging message for the middle of the week. The article is about women’s health, but I imagine the effect is similar for men.
    Get out and run today!
