Running is a love/hate-activity for most people. It takes some willpower to get going, it hurts a bit during the run, but the feel-good payoff afterward makes it worth the effort.
But for others, running is just a hate-activity, as in “I hate running!”
And that’s completely fine. You don’t have to run to be fit and healthy. At the same time, have there ever been instances when you wish you liked it? (I bet you have.)
Whether it’s the social aspect of running with friends, all the amazing fitness benefits running offers or the opportunity to train for a goal or raise money for charity, running certainly does have its perks.
There are 8 simple steps to become a runner — even if you think you don’t like running.
Even small amounts of physical activity can be good for your health. But do you know all the reasons why?
If the thought of exercise turns you off, it may be time to reframe your perspective. Research shows that it’s not just structured exercise but any type of physical activity that has benefits. This means anything that gets you moving—a walk with a friend, raking leaves in the yard, climbing several flights of stairs—counts, as long as it gets you moving for a sustained amount of time. And any amount of physical activity is better than none. This means getting moving for just 15 minutes a day can start to bring benefits, especially if you are usually not active.

For many people, an exercise routine means getting in a car, driving to the gym, slogging away on an elliptical machine and then retreating back to their homes or offices, where they sit down in front of the blue glow of a computer, TV or tablet. But there’s something missed when exercise takes place only in indoor gyms and fitness studios. Trading up some of your gym time for time on the trails, the river or the bike path can bring benefits beyond improved fitness.
Living a life without setting goals has been said to be like sailing a ship without a planned course.

When we eat “nutrient rich” foods we get concentrated amounts of vitamins, minerals, fiber, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients, without the added ingredients that increase calories and our waistlines.
