Obviously! This is the main reason why people start running or jogging in the first place.

Running Can Cure Depression

This is something that I have personally experienced. Of course, research has also established this point but first hand experience preceeds research, right?

So it was a couple of years ago, when a guy I truly loved left me for another woman. This depressed me, along with this I was really low on self-confidence.

Nothing was working for me and it felt like I was perpetually depressed and even my favourite things were not able to cheer me up.

I had become lazy and inactive and one day I decided that I must move on and to bring back activity in my life I started walking, jogging, running in the morning.

You wouldn’t believe that it actually cured my depression and made me way more cheerful than I was before my depression phase.

Running is amazing!

So, Run! Forrest, run!
