I turned 34 last Sunday! I’m getting old!
AH NOT REALLY! :-)
(although a good friend has sent me the picture above on my special day! I guess that's what friends are for!)
If I can concentrate on 2 things for the next 12 months I think I can arrive at my next birthday younger:
1. TO LEARN
2. TO TAKE CARE OF MY BODY
I borrowed the next article from Run Is a Gift: it allows me to learn from my brothers’ examples and also to gain the motivation to stay fit!
I’ve shortened the article a little but if you want more just continue reading here.
3 Reasons Why Running makes you a better worker!
No, even if you are a great runner, you won’t be able to escape from your problems …
But there are other great benefits:
1- Grows your Confidence
The simple fact that you overcome small adversities in every run (like running in the rain) and that you feel Fit, will increase your confidence levels!
2- Increases your Mental strength in stressful situations
Running reduces anxiety levels and it’s the best (and cheapest) anti-stress pill in the world!
3- Stimulates Creativity
We run to relax from Work, but it’s also a fact, that many brilliant ideas have emerged during a particular Run !!
(Note: I wrote this article shortly after a morning Run)
Many Advantages indeed, but wait please, do not start now…
The Big “disadvantage” is that, probably, several co-workers will try to seduce you big time!
You have 2 options: try to be strong or just start RUNNING !!!
