Going for a run is not only a good way to some of your spend your free time, research has found that regular running could also help to enhance your working hours and the quality of work. The fact that exercise requires planning, application, dedication and discipline means that it can help to improve your character development as well as your health. In fact, a study of people training for a Houston marathon and half-marathon found that regular exercise improves people’s goal-setting, organization and discipline – both at work and in other areas of life.
Research from Rhode Island College also suggests that aerobic exercise (particularly when involving activities that don’t require much thought) can kick-start your creativity and keep your brain cells tingling for a couple of hours afterwards, so head out for a run before a big brainstorming meeting to get your creative juices flowing. People, who do not sleep well, often feel languid at work during the day. Try running few miles before you go to work in the morning and see how that makes your day better and energetic.
