Running Is My Therapy - Relieve Stress and Anxiety, Fight Depression, Ditch Bad Habits, and Live Happier
|Author:||Scott Douglas; Alison Mariella Désir (Foreword by)|
Now in paperback: a New York Times--bestselling author's "helpful, highly readable user's guide" (Runner's World) to fighting depression and anxiety, one run at a time
Longtime runner Scott Douglas marshals expert advice and a growing body of research to show how a consistent running routine can make us happier--and enhance the benefits of talk therapy, antidepressants, and cognitive behavioral therapy. The therapeutic power of running lies in its lasting physiological effects: It induces changes in brain structure and chemistry that other forms of exercise don't. Douglas presents methods we can all use to live happier--in and out of running shoes.
