Running comes to us naturally as humans, as soon as a child learns to walk the next thing they are up for is to run as far and as fast they can. It is said running for 10-15 minutes a day can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Each run helps decrease your resting heart rate, so your heart doesn't need to work as hard.  The brain is said to pump out two powerful feel-good chemicals, endorphins and endocannabinoids. Many experts believe that human bodies are shaped the way that they are to evolve as endurance runners. It is an easily accessible form of cardio exercise that benefits the body in miraculous ways. 

The human body is said to get its most of vitamin D requirements from sun exposure, but since we spend most of our time indoors, it doesn’t help our body in any way. Taking a run is said to boost your vitamin D levels to avoid depression, prevent type 2 diabetes with strengthening of your bones. Running burns calories like no other exercise as it helps clear your mind and body off the gunk. 

Running is a no-equipment exercise that wards off any dilemma if we can do it or not. You just need to be ready to embrace the path of fitness. No restrictions of place to run, you choose your spot and go get the best. 

You can run at any time of the day that suits you the best be it morning or evening. Unlike the aerobic workout you perform in the gym, running is high impact, as it loads and rebuilds your bones along with muscles. You can go for the different types of runs including tempo runs, running hills, performing intervals, or clubbing the road and trail to achieve an in between. 

Listen to your heart and go for that run!
