Physical activity is so important for our overall health and wellbeing.
Just because the gyms are closed doesn’t mean your workout routine has to come to an end.
Not all workouts require fancy equipment or a trainer, after all.
Not only is running excellent exercise – it can also decrease anxiety and increase our energy levels.
Staying home all day can be very mentally and physically draining. When you’re feeling tired, going on a walk or run may be the last thing you want to do. But at the end of the day, it’ll be well worth it.
Running in Nature:
Several studies show that spending time in nature can increase self-esteem and decrease stress and anxiety.
Running outdoors does all that and more! If you are running in a high traffic area, just make sure you’re staying at least 6 feet away from other people at all times.
If you’re new to running, it can feel a little intimidating at first. However, even a few minutes a day is enough to make a difference.
There are also plenty of apps out there that can help hold you accountable and track your progress. As time goes on, every step will become a little easier. Remember, every lap is an accomplishment and something to be celebrated.
