Asics used EEGs to prove that, yes, running makes you happier

Must read


The numbers presented are quite staggering, with an 18% increase in participants’ ability to relax, a 28% drop in reckless decision making, and a 29% improvement in stress resilience. Stubbs said those numbers come from EEG scans rather than self-reported by test subjects.

He added that EEGs also revealed a 58% reduction in signs of cognitive stress, the symptoms of which are anxiety, forgetfulness and disorganization. The data also shows a 26% increase in the speed at which people’s brains process data and a 21% improvement in memory.

Beyond the statistics, Stubbs’ research found that for us normal, the mental health benefits of exercise were greater than for the pros. He told Engadget that he suspected that since professionals had already ‘mastered’ their sport, they needed to do less brain work in motion. In addition, he has found that runners who run in a group perform better than those who run alone, which he wants to explore further.

Stubbs told Engadget that he is eager to clarify these results with more research and that he will look to see if there is an ideal workout that will help improve people’s mental health. He also wants to examine if there is a difference between the psychological boost offered to these amateur athletes and those who do not get the minimum recommended amount of exercise in a week.

Asics is using research as part of its plan to encourage people to get outside and exercise while we all take refuge there. He started the Move With The Sun challenge, where runners encourage their friends to get out and hit the sidewalks either by using RunKeeper or, you know, buying new sneakers.
