Run for Your Life: Mindful Running for a Happy Life
We all know how a long walk, a slow jog or a brisk run can free our minds to wander, and give us a powerful uplifting feeling. Some call it the 'runner's high', others put it down to endorphins. But what if we could channel that energy and use it to make positive change in our lives?
William Pullen is a psychotherapist who helps people to work through their issues using his revolutionary method, Dynamic Running Therapy. His is a radical new approach to mindfulness.
Whether you are looking for strategies to cope with anxiety, change or decision-making, or simply want to focus your mind while pounding the streets, Run for Your Life offers a series of simple mental routines that unleash the meditative, restorative powers of exercise.
When I got home I felt lighter, happier; free of the events of the day. If your day had been horribly stressful or desperately sad, that might be just the medicine you need. -- Lauren Milligan * Vogue * Deep questions concerning your issues - such as how you think it started, what you do to cope, when it's at its worst etc - strangely flow easily as you pound the pavement. * GQ *
