These benefits are good motivators to get you starting short workouts.
Waking up early feels heavy. I’m thankful but I don’t like the feeling. The beds warm, it’s cold outside and my cellphone alarm keeps beeping the 4:30 morning run.
This is how I start my day and as you can imagine, it’s cranky.
For 4 years now it’s always been like that so why do I still put my shoes on and log a 10km run? Like most skills consistency is important so that you can develop and take hold it’s benefits.
Here are some that fuels me for a morning run. And I bet it will give you one or two reasons to start working out.
CHEAP SPORT, SAVE CASH
From where I am, it’s very important to bank on health. But money here don’t come easy when you get sick so the cheapest way to prevent it is through excersise.
Running in particular is a sport that costs less than any other I can think of. To make it clearer to understand, shoes are cheap and hospitals are expensive.
Proof is not a problem. You can get it easy from medical websites, online sports publications and of course my favorite – Mr. Google. One that I came across reading was an article from Huffington post by Shelley Emling about the study that helps runners stay young. And another material by Elizabeth McLeod Sadler pointing out to people with depression, psychological disorder, addiction and remarkably treatment of certain heart problems.

“I’M SEXY AND I KNOW IT!“
You sure are a 100% correct I am banking on health so that I can open a savings account and at the same time look good.
People at Brooks Running Company published a survey they conducted during the National Running Day that reveals the sport increases sex appeal. Survey also says 76% of all participants (84% of males) believe people look sexy when they’re running and three quarters agree that runners are more attractive.

CHARGED UP BRAIN
Today you might have a sales target, product presentations, exams or assigned at the customer complaints desk. Run to set your self on the mood before doing any of those stressful tasks.
Exercise helps me focus and concentrate to be productive. I totally agree with Jeniffer Cohen about her written contribution for Forbes.com on 6 ways running can make you smarter. Let me list them here:
1. Increased Energy – for getting new or cool and outrageous ideas like catching bigfoot. Duh!
2. Sharpens Focus – effective with daily tasks and helps with delaying brain aging and Alzhiemers desease.
3. Enhances Mood – releases endorphines: the happy hormones for sad folks.
4. Helps Control Impulse – for really emotional dudes, running can help you alot.
5. Improves Memory – if your having trouble remembering your “exes” names, run.
6. Productivity – this is the part that has an awesome impact on me. I learned to manage my time, prioritize to do lists and make a daily planner.
Back then I was a slow thinker. In fact I would often ask twice to clearly understand someone’s question and what they mean. But now, my reaction time is better and an asset specially to jobs like mine that deals with customer complaints and inquiries first hand.
GETTING IT DONE IS EASY AND SHORT.
Ok yeah so I’ve told you the good stuff and all so might be thinking what’s in it for you? More importantly, how do you do it?
There is not a time wasted when you exercise. I can attest to that. Staring on your Facebook page or Twitter account for some nonesense messages ain’t worth it. Spend time wisely so that you can have those amazing benefits.
Like I mentioned, the key is to include a 30 minute non – negotiable schedule for workout. Not necessarily everyday but instead start with 3 to 4 days a week with rest in between running days. It doesnt matter if you go jog – walk – jog – walk as long as you start doing it nice and easy like how I did before.

Now I need you to tell me how you stick with your running plan and why is it giving you a hard time? Run daily, healthy!
