Had a bad day? Feeling drained? Brain fog? Frustrated? At the end of the day are you left feeling “how am I going to change my mind frame?”
Well….I choose to run!
Run off the day, run off the negative thoughts in my mind and any frustration or worries, and get outside and run! Personally I love what a difference it makes.
Running is such a great example of a good coping strategy to clear my mind, it’s also a way of doing something to support yourself in releasing any bottled up emotions, thoughts and turn them around and let them fuel you to have willpower!
My running helps me build up resilience to my ever filling stress container! You see once I’ve run I feel like I’ve achieved something too!
Its hard to sometimes commit time to yourself, so anything that promotes this and leads to you feeling positive is worth making time for.
You cannot beat that feeling of helping yourself through things and feeling like you’re getting there, you are making things change for the better. I find what’s great with running I can choose the path, route and distance, so it’s totally your call. Running is something that you can do alone, with someone else or as part of a community/ team. This can also help you feel you are connecting with the world regularly.
My running also gives me a new found lease of life, It’s a tool that acts as a motivation muscle for me to stay on track with my goals, reflect who I want to be and keeps me on the right.
It’s a good idea is to think of what you are going to have as your support tool if you don’t yet have one.
Make the you time count, invest in you!
