You Should Know This is 3 Of the TopBenefits of Jogging Daily - Looking for a good reason to slip on your running shoes and get out the door for a jog today? If you don't have a good enough reason of your own,

Daily Jogging

Check out my top 3 benefits of running for fitness.

Physical Benefits

Research has clearly demonstrated time and time again that running for fitness has many different health benefits including :

  • Improved heart and lung function,
  • Better blood cholesterol levels,
  • Enhanced immune system response
  • Decreased likelihood of developing diabetes, cancer, heart disease
  • Weight management - runners are less likely to be overweight or obese

Running for weight loss or weight management is one of the highest scoring reasons that people take up running. Excessive weight is implicated in a number of the chronic health problems mentioned above, most significantly heart disease and diabetes. A daily jog will help to burn excess calories and can reverse many serious health problems.

Mental Benefits

Another of the benefits you receive from running regularly is improved mental health. Here are a few of benefits you can experience from a daily jogging :

  • Reduced stress
  • Improved focus and mental abilities
  • Less incidence of depression

In fact, psychiatrists and psychologists have prescribed running for some of their patients suffering from depression. Instead of reaching for that little bottle of pills, slip on your running shoes and go for a run.

Other Benefits

Since I took up running, I've enjoyed greater success in all areas of my life : finance, romance and career. You may think it's a bit of a stretch to connect running to success but hear me out. Top motivation gurus like Anthony Robbins know that a change in our physical state can effect massive effects in our mental state.

For instance, if you're feeling blue, you could try cheering and celebrating like you just won the lottery. You would immediately feel positive and upbeat. Although you might think that the effect would be short term, it has been demonstrated that getting into a positive state carries over for much longer than the moment it occurs.

Good running form requires that you keep your head upright, arms pumping breathing deeply into your chest. If you were to observe successful people, you would note that they too have a very positive physical presence. I say that running form is a model for success. 

If you run daily, you will adopt this form and feel successful at least one time per day. That cannot help but spill over into other areas of your life. Why not start or finish every day with a run and give yourself a pat on the back for a daily success.
