We all face lots of stress in the modern world. That’s just a fact. Unless you have completely turned away from the hectic and chaotic world we live in – and if you have I say well done – we are all prone to experiencing the negative effects of stress. For some it can be totally crippling, affecting entire days, weeks or months at a time. When you are dealing with high stress it is literally the only thing you can think about, and the problems causing the stress in the first place are not getting solved. Meditation can change all of that.
Running, when done properly, is one of the most physically beneficial activities we can do. Running builds cardiovascular fitness and improves overall muscle strength. Not to mention the euphoria or “runner’s high” that accompanies a good run. While running has many health benefits, it does subject the musculoskeletal system to a unique level of stress.
