Often people look me meaningfully in the eye, put their hand on my shoulder and say in the voice usually reserved for the severely ill:
'Why don't you take up meditating? Or yoga?'
And they give me this little tap on the shoulder.
I suppose I sometimes come across as being quite stressed out...
Thinking of yoga gives me a rush of adrenaline!
But just the thought of meditating or yoga is enough to give me a rush of adrenaline. The idea to sit somewhere quietly makes me want to scream!
Luckily running is a form of meditation! The repeating movement of legs and feet have a meditative effect, and fresh air and nature have a calming effect too.
Running offers natural stress relief
So I'll just run my impatience and stress out of me, and run my way to rest. Running helps me get rid of the excess of adrenaline coursing through my body.
It's a natural way to become a more calm and peaceful person.
