Whole to the Core Blog

According to a recent study out of Denmark, women who jogged regularly increased their life expectancy by 5.6 years. But long-term benefits shouldn’t be your only motivation to hit the pavement. Here are some immediate perks to those who run:

  • Mental Clarity

  • Increased Energy

  • Improved sleep patterns

  • An increase in serotonin, dopamine and endorphins

  • Feelings of relaxation and happiness (thanks to the brain chemicals listed above!)

  • Improved self-esteem and confidence
