The Power of Community
When battling anxiety and/or depression, we may feel inclined to isolate ourselves. If you are currently struggling, being part of a community is most likely the last thing you want to do, but this is where the supportive running community can be particularly beneficial. The shared experiences and camaraderie among runners can provide a much-needed sense of belonging in these times of great need.
The running community is diverse and welcoming, filled with individuals who share common goals and challenges. You might even be surprised by how many have been in similar situations that you might also be going through. This sense of connection can significantly reduce feelings of isolation that often accompany mental health challenges.
Whether it's joining a local running group, participating in races, or sharing your running journey on social media, becoming part of the running community can greatly support your mental health journey. Remember, running towards mindfulness isn't a solitary endeavour - it's a collective journey, a shared path towards better mental health, one step at a time.
If you’re looking to join a community of supportive and inclusive runners, feel free to send us a DM or E-mail. We’d love to connect.
