Achieving the health and fitness goals you've set yourself for the year starts with small steps, and going for a morning run can be part of that. But there are more reasons to run than just for fitness - it can help improve mental clarity and bring you inner peace too. Whether you're a sprinter or a jogger, prefer running with views of the city skyline or a rural run by the canal, we've got 8 reasons for you to get up and go for a morning run tomorrow!
#1. Get some perspective
It's too easy to fall into the trap of thinking you're having a bad day, but going for a run first thing can help to give you some perspective. You might have broken your iPhone by dropping it this morning, but somewhere out there, there's somebody who is going without even basic necessities such as food and water. Putting your life in perspective in this way and taking the time to be gratefulfor the things you have, rather than taking them for granted, sets you up to be a more positive person. Take the time to appreciate the scenery around you as you run - use all your senses - and think about the little things you have that you're thankful for, such as your health, friends and family and food in your fridge. Think of it as meditation, on the go!
