Description

There's no other book like this. Longtime running writer Scott Douglas marshals expert advice (including his own, cultivated from more than 100,000 miles of personal experience), and a growing body of scientific research to show how running can make us happier.

How? Everyone knows that running builds stronger muscles and a healthier heart; science now shows it also helps develop a healthier brain. For those struggling with depression and anxiety, a consistent running routine can enhance the mental-health benefits of talk therapy, antidepressants, and cognitive behavioral therapy. The key to running's therapeutic power lies in its lasting physiological effects, inducing changes in brain structure and chemistry that other forms of exercise don't. Thanks to the body's release of natural pain-relievers that includes the best mood boost in all of sports.

Running is my therapy is no longer just a mantra for seasoned runners; with science behind him, Douglas presents proven methods so that we can all use running to improve our mental health and live happier - in and out of running shoes.

Needs a different narrator

Another book that I like but dread listening to it.
Reset this book with a new narrator, please.

keep going, but know your limits

I found this book very useful for underlining why it's so important for me to run regularly. I get a lot of comfort from knowing that there are people who also suffer from depression and run for the mental health benefits. I have a good foundation of diet and sleep, however the run truly adds a extra quality to my life. I am very grateful and thankful that I am able to run, and that I have the opportunities to do it regularly.

This is a great book which consolidated what I already know about the positive impact of running on mental health. But I did get a lot of new information, and I found the many anecdotes from other runners very interesting.

The title says it all

This book was exactly what I was looking for. It explained why running makes me feel so much better, how others use running as a coping strategy, and when to get worried if you think you're using running as a crutch.

Good for the wondering mind

The run on sentence I feel this is fit perfectly into my wondering mind. It was refreshing to know that others out there are getting what I am from my running. Having gone through a lot in the last 7 years and struggling with depression most my life, it was nice to hear all of what was said in this book. I’m not alone in running bettering my life or even saving it. Good listen for those needing a little pat on the back you’re doing the right thing.

"To be a Runner you Just have to Run!"

Such a book was needed in today's culture. I loved that the book delivers scientific facts, personal summaries and interviews from mental health professionals. Also, I especially appreciate that the author leaves managing your care to you. No judgement not an advocate for or against medicine. Work of Art! Thank you friend

mental wellness

interesting reading that running (self medicating) for some runners may not enough to control depression and anxiety.
