SKIP THE MEN­TAL CHORE OF TRY­ING TO WORK OUT HOW TO ‘BE PRESENT’ WITH OUR EASY MIND­FUL RUN­NING HACKS

Men's Health (Australia) - - Ask MH -

KEEP COUNT

Whether it’s your steps or the num­ber of trees you pass, “Count­ing helps you hold con­cen­tra­tion and keeps you in the here and now,” says Pullen.

SAY IT AGAIN

Pick a phrase re­lated to an as­pect of your run that you want to im­prove and re­peat it. “Mantras are great,” says Pullen. “We can tailor them to our needs.”

STAY POS­I­TIVE

When you feel like quit­ting, keep go­ing. “Some­times we think we’re tired but this can be more in the mind than the body,” says Pullen.
