While running won’t make you lose weight, but it’s definitely a good exercise. You see, running is one of the best things we can do. I have started running from today 18th July, 2016. And will hopefully keep it up throughout the rest of the day. There is no rest day or holiday in this running streak. I gotta wake up and run. Plain and simple. Of course, hard to follow for someone who’s spent a good deal of his days waking up significantly late (at 9 am) than the time to go for run (5:30). Huge shift, right?
I will probably miss days here and there. But I will my best not to.
You see, habits are everything. So I am already building a good arsenal of healthy habits. According to one study at Duke University, 40% of our days are spent automatically on habits. Meaning 40% of we do throughout a normal day does not necessarily involve conscious decision making. 40% is habits. So you better make sure those habits are good ones! Because habits tend not to break if done for long amount of time.
Or else, 40% of your life will go where you did or did not wish for it to go. If you are young enough (in teens or early twenties), this is the BEST time to build a running habit. It won’t look like much. It won’t gain you weight. It won’t make you lose weight. In fact, it will look a laborious little task at first. But when you run and you run for a number of days in row, incredible things happen. Trust me.
