Running makes you happy (research says so)

3 Comments

It’s January 10th and all your New Year’s resolutions about healthy living and exercising more are alreday tumbling? Now, mine are still strong and here are a few titbits that get me going (plus my inner nagging voice, but we already know that…).

According to a Taiwanese study, if you exercise only 15 minutes 6 days a week, you’ll live 3 years longer.

Other research suggests that 2.5 hours of exercise a week decreases the risk of heart disease by 14%.

And my favorite (proven by my own self study) is that exercise makes you happier. Another study suggests that 45 minutes of cardio exercise 3 times a week boosts energy and reduces stress.

Why are you still reading? Go out and be happy!

  1. Oh yeah… I got so engaged reading your blog, I forgot to thank you for following mine!

    Much gratitude,
    Jan

  2. Oh so true! I miss my running (28 surgeries knocked that out) but exercise in any form keeps the endorphins flowing.

    Running for a cause… so cool!

    I see you are inspiring and healthy too 🙂
