Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise in the UK. Studies suggest a range of benefits for the health of our body and mind when we run. These include helping prevent obesity, heart disease and high blood pressure, and boosting sleep quality and mood.
In recent years, there has also been a growing interest in mindfulness. Research is linking a regular and sustained mindfulness practice with a decrease in the incidence of depression, anxiety, and stress. It can also improve the ability to regulate our emotions and help increase our focus and attention.
“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”- Jon Kabat-Zin
