Running for your head and heart!

Nikwax launches a specialist kit to care for your running gear

From pounding the pavements, to running tracks, or hitting the trails, wherever people decide to run, there is no denying that more and more of us have taken up this activity as a means to keep fit. This year during lockdown, we have seen more of you lacing up your running trainers and heading out for a first run. Covid-19 gave people the time to run – usual routines were disrupted and we were all looking to retain some normality whilst having the opportunity to try something new.

Even with time available to go running, we all need motivation and this takes shape in a variety of different ways. Perhaps you want to improve cardiovascular health, build muscle or lose weight, or sometimes, you just want to burn off that extra slice of pizza or chocolate cake! However, don’t forget that while you are taking care of your body, you are also taking care of your mind. It is a win-win activity to help both health and mental wellbeing.

Nikwax is now taking care of the last piece of the puzzle, your kit!
Nikwax has launched a new Sports Care Kit – containing everything you need to stay comfortable whilst running. Nikwax’s sports kit will keep your running gear in optimum condition, keeping you dry, fresh and comfortable whatever the weather. Plus, it comes with a free 10L dry bag (21x47cm), great for storage of dirty kit, valuables or anything else you want to use it for!

Now let us talk about the benefits of running for your mental health.

– Running can reduce stress levels and boost the body’s ability to deal with mental strain
– The chemicals released during and after running can help reduce anxiety and feel calmer
– Running when the sun is out gives you a vitamin D boost
– Cardiovascular exercise can create new brain cells and improve overall brain performance
– A run can be the equivalent of a sleeping pill, even for people with insomnia
– Research shows that workers who exercise on a regular basis are more productive
– A heart-pumping run can boost creativity.

So, with all those reasons what are you waiting for?! Lace up, get out and care for your running kit with Nikwax.
