Have you never been a fan of running? We're about to change your mind. Put one foot in front of the other and start chasing these awesome benefits of running...

shared from our friends at Bara Sportswear

1.  Running makes you feel healthy 

Whenever you complete a run, no matter the distance, and take a deep breathe knowing that you just did something to improve your health and well-being- there’s nothing like a good cardiovascular work out to achieve that!

2.  Running helps you live longer 

It is proven that running reduces your risk of heart disease, cancer, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s.  Now that’s a great return for our efforts!

3.  Running makes you smarter 

We are all well aware that exercise increases brain activity, but scientists have also discovered that hundreds of thousands of new cells are created in the brain’s grey matter (that area of the mind that controls memory and learning) after running for only a few days!  (And we all need all the help we can get there, am I right?)

4. Running will help you learn you to push your limits 

If you put in the work you will see your running improve and that is such an awesome feeling of accomplishment.  You become faster, stronger, and more consistent over the years, and will achieve PRs, as well as taking on longer distances. Running can teach you how to push beyond your limits and can prove you that you can and will achieve your goals.

5. Running helps keep your belly flat 

Running burns visceral fat, the type of fat that lives in the abdominal-baby-flap area of the body.  Having a flat(ish) tummy again is great motivation to lace those sneakers and hit the road! 

6.  Training clothes look good on and are comfortable 

Many people have more workout clothes than day-to-day clothes. We could just wear training clothes everywhere we go. There’s nothing as comfy as a pair of leggings, high quality tech tee, and broken in running shoes.

7.  Running allows you to eat

And we LOVE to eat! You can’t really run and not eat - training for a marathon is not a weight loss plan - your body needs the fuel in order to push the distance. When training for a race, you eat to be healthy and to nourish your hard-working muscles. 

8. Running keeps you happy

Have anyone ever finished a run being sad?  I am always much happier after a run.  Running is such a great stress reliever. The run can be hard but my life can be so much easier because of it, and that is very true.  We all know that endorphins- the hormones that create a sense of exhilaration- are released when you run, an all natural high, so to speak!

9. Running can improve sleep habits 

The older we get, the more important it is to carve out that easy, restful, peaceful 8-10 hours of slumber each night. Training is stress relieving and you can therefore fall asleep easier. 

10.  Running can give you mental fortitude 

I won’t lie to you, running is not easy at first. You feel like you can't breathe, there is pain in every joint, and you feel like a 2 ton elephant. But after a just few tries, your body starts to adjust, and what seemed impossible (run 20 miles? Are you freaking KIDDING ME?) becomes something that you could easily manage. You can keep proving to yourself time and time again that you are much stronger than you think and if you just believe in your ability, you can do anything.

11.  Clears your mind and gives you the energy to take on the day 

Any time you spend running is refreshing, relaxing, rejuvenating and peaceful.  If you are working on an issue, you can find that with each step, your mind files away the good stuff, tosses the junk, and organizes what’s really important.  After the run, your mental “inbox” is cleaned out, your head left clear, thoughts sharp, and disposition agreeable.


If we have managed to convince you to give running a try, then you have to try our leggings and products by Bara Sportswear....they are perfect for running. They don't slip down, they have a unique 4-way stretch and recovery features, moisture wicking materials and much more.

6 HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS FOR 2022 (from @bara)

6 HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS FOR 2022 (from @bara)

Let’s say hello and welcome to a healthier 2022 with 6 awesome and tasty snack ideas brought to you by our friends at Bara Sportswear

Snacking is when you eat things other than your main meals during the day. Snacks are often smaller food quantities that are consumed in between meals.

While the data on whether snacking helps with weight reduction is inconsistent, some evidence suggests that snacking can assist in regulating appetite and improving blood sugar levels.

Snacking can also help you consume more nutrient-dense meals like fruits and vegetables, which most people do not get enough of.

Aim for snacks that are high in protein, fibre, and healthy fats, since these can help you stay fuller for longer and make better choices at your next meal.

1. Mixed nuts

Nuts are an excellent source of healthy fats, protein, and fibre, making them an excellent snack.

They're not only delicious, but they're also high in fibre and have a lot of health advantages. According to studies, eating nuts in moderation might help you lose weight despite their high calorie and fat content.

Walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, macadamia nuts, cashews, and pistachios are just a few of the nuts you may pick from.

They're a terrific option for on-the-go snacking because they don't require refrigeration. Maintain a 1 ounce or 1/4 cup serving size.

Greek yoghurt as a healthy snack

2. Greek yoghurt with mixed berries

A delightful, nutrient-dense snack may be made using plain Greek yoghurt and berries.

Greek yoghurt is abundant in protein, and berries are one of the most antioxidant-rich foods available.

To receive a variety of nutrients and a blend of sweet and sour tastes, mix a variety of various coloured berries into your yoghurt.

Dark chocolate as a healthy snack

3. Almonds with dark chocolate

Dark chocolate and almonds go along beautifully. The combination of rich chocolate taste and crunchy almonds is a flavour and health powerhouse.

Almonds are a good source of healthful fats, while dark chocolate provides antioxidants.

The two combine to form a heart-healthy, filling, and portable snack. Try a square of dark chocolate with a handful of almonds or a couple of tablespoons of dark chocolate chips.

Cherry tomatoes as a healthy snack

4. Mozzarella-stuffed cherry tomatoes

Tomatoes with mozzarella cheese are a delicious and healthful way to increase your vegetable intake.

To make a snack with protein, fibre, and healthy fats, combine tomatoes with mozzarella, balsamic vinegar, and a dab of olive oil.

This refreshing snack can also be served as a side salad with your next dinner.

Oatmeal as a healthy snack

5. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a highly adaptable food that may be eaten hot or cold, at home or on the road. Simply prepare a smaller quantity of oats than you would for a meal.

Oats are a nutrient-dense whole grain that has more fibre and protein than other cereals.

Moreover, you may fulfil your sweet craving with fruit, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, or opt for a savoury version with eggs, avocado, and vegetables like mushrooms or tomatoes.

Frozen grapes as a healthy snack

6. Frozen grapes

Cold, tasty and mouthwatering! Frozen grapes are such a delicious snack, and especially refreshing during warm summer days. Frozen grapes are wonderfully refreshing, incredibly healthful, low-calorie, and quite simple to make. You don't have to do anything but put them in the freezer, after all.
