#reasonsforbeinghappy – week 7

Running = endorhphins = happiness.

I’ve recently got back into running again and alongside my tri-weekly yoga practice, running keeps me incredibly fit and allows me to enjoy the outdoors in a purposeful way.  Need an excuse for getting out and exploring the local area? Go running! I love discovering new routes and tracking my progress with the Run Keeper App, it truly is a great way to get those happy hormones flowing and the perfect compliment to any yogi’s fitness schedule.

Week 7

1. New running kit!

A friend recently recommended Asics as a good start point for decent running shoes.  My old Nikes were not providing my weak arches with enough support and I was getting referred pain in my knees every time I ran, and so it was time to replace them with something more effective. The staff in my local Asicis store were knowledgeable and helpful and along with chatting about my running regime and history they provided a gait analysis, which allowed them to match the footwear perfectly to my needs.  The trainers I chose had built-in arch/ankle support and good shock absorbency for my knees, and I’ve really been enjoying getting out for a run in the fresh air again.

2. Lighter, brighter evenings.

Arriving home from work in daylight is just so relieving. The heavy hug of Winter darkness is finally waning, and just like Spring bulbs which are sprouting everywhere here in Kent; I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel – It’s the 1st of March and Spring is almost here! That also means its time to get into the garden and get ready for a fruitful Summer growing season.

3. A growing blog – progress at last!

This week since the big migration I have seen a vast improvement in my stats, more followers and the beginnings of a pinterest following.  Its been really inspiring and whilst I still struggle to balance the home/work/blog balance, I have lots of exciting new ideas in the pipeline to improve Green Dreams and Yoga – thank you all so much for the continued support! As a relatively new blogger I need your help more than ever to grow and improve – don’t forget you can also find and follow me on  facebook, twitter, pinterest, bloglovin and please keep sharing with your green friends!
