We have always been told that exercising has many benefits for our physical health, but did you know that it also has them for our psychological health? Running allows you to fight all the negativity that may reside in you.
The routine, the bad moments, the adverse circumstances … All this can cause us to become dark and sad people, full of negativity.
We want to be positive, but try as we might, we can’t. Maybe we are not doing the right thing.
How about we try to go outside and run?
Running unlocks you
If you have a creative job, being blocked is not a situation that benefits you. Likewise, you may need to use your imagination and your ideas in the project you are carrying out, but for various reasons you find yourself incapable.
All this can cause you to feel emotions such as anger, anxiety, stress. And the dreaded depression? This problem also falls within this range of negative emotions.
Instead of hiding, turning away from everyone and pretending a false smile that says “I’m fine”, we need to get down to work to solve this situation that is making us opaque and without light.
To do this, run. How many times have you felt bad or blocked and have been advised to go out for a walk to clear yourself ?
It is true that when we leave that area where we feel bad we can begin to feel much better.
If we run, we will further enhance all this. Exercise allows our blood to circulate, that we oxygenate our body, that we release all that stress and anxiety that is submitting us.
Running tires you, it exhausts you physically and psychologically so that those negative emotions disappear and give way to others that are much calmer and more positive. So why don’t we run a little every day?
We are continually immersed in passive work that bores us and exhausts us psychologically. Also, we have to deal with many toxic people around us whose negative emotions infect us.
Something needs to be done about it, and running allows us to regulate our emotions.
Many people decide to run before going to work. A little run before breakfast will whet your appetite, start the day with energy and good humor, and allow you to be much more prepared for everything that may happen to you.
Also, there are those who decide to run after work, almost at night, when they get home. In this way, they manage to release all the stress caused by work in order to enjoy a restful sleep.
It doesn’t matter what time you go out for a run, the important thing is that you do it. Your body and mind will appreciate it.
Exercise and happiness
Have you ever wondered why people who exercise more or those who work in gyms are always so happy? The normal thing is that they receive you with a wide smile and that they are always happy.
That’s because they don’t give your mind and body time to pollute itself with negative emotions. They expel them all with physical exercise.
Like you, they have problems in their daily life. They are also victims of all the circumstances that can freely turn their lives upside down. However, the exercise makes them see all this in a different way.
Your mind will be much clearer to think clearly and not anticipate events.
When something negative happens to us, we think about everything that it will cause and you will believe that its consequences will be horrible. You’re sure?
Running will not only help you to be much happier, to have a much better mood, but it will also help you to regulate your emotions with ease. In addition, it will allow you to have a much clearer and more creative mind.
Not only your emotions will appreciate it, your work, your family and your friends too. You will be much more positive and more tolerant of all those emotions that cause sadness, anxiety, stress or desolation.
Now, you will know how to effectively counter them. Runs!
