Have you ever imagined what this world would be like without violence, who hasn’t. But more importantly what would this world be like if everyone ran, now this is what goes through my mind. Instead of addressing problems like violence, drugs, poverty and disease individually, we have to gear towards a more collectivized answer. What might that be?
Running. Running is the cheapest form of therapy, yet the most effective. People often feel the need to seek out the guidance of a doctor when all they are being payed to do is to sit and have an ordinary conversation. In those minutes the patient relives their struggles and pains that they are going through in their life. The same goes with running, but what’s different? Your body suffers physically and mentally. After running your course, you learn the true meaning of life and that what you are going through is only temporary. Pain is inevitable, you just have to embrace it. There’s always the easiest part of the course, it’s up to you to live in the moment so that when that time comes, you will know that the difficult times played to your advantage.
Going along with your therapy bill comes a hospital bill. In most instances people end up in rooms like the one above because they failed to take care of their health. As cliche as exercise might be, it is not a surprise that it works best. Running in particular builds discipline and a passion for fitness. One who runs only suffers from having incredibly amazing health. The number one thing I strive to work towards is discipline. I continue to train my body to crave running, in return I get all of the added benefits. There’s no need to train yourself for a healthy diet because you will instantly want to eat well , so that your body won’t lack the energy or motivation to run more.
This all goes to say my answer for our problems is running. Running’s ability to improve your mental state will not only save you money and time but it will allow you to minister onto other the true meaning of life.
