In ‘The Story of’, you can read stories from users of our app, stories about real people with great experiences, victories, and goals. Get inspired, this week by Sifra, who has only been running for a year, but has already learned a lot about the positive effects of running. Physically, but also mentally.
You often hear it, runners like to ‘empty their minds’ after a long day of work. It’s their way to relax. And you know what? They are absolutely right! If you run, you don’t think about anything. Moreover, running improves the functioning and recovery of the parts of your brain that inhibit stress, such as the production of stress hormones. Possible burn-out symptoms can be reduced or even prevented altogether.
