About this deal

of our deliveries are made by Royal Mail as we think they give the best service and cover all areas of the UK. Carrie Fisher's quote in Jog On gave a good reason why I should not skip my daily exercise, reading and wiring.

The book is split into ten chapters (1k, 2k and so on) as well as tips on getting started and helpful resources.It was down an alleyway and I just kept going back there because I was too ashamed to run anywhere else, as I thought people would laugh and shout at me. Through her story she gives the reader tips with a non bullshit approach, without sounding smug or preachy. This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. If you're curious about the benefits of running for mental wellbeing, I'd recommend giving this book a read. I wouldn't have imagined that it would end up bringing me joy and confidence and imbue me with a love of exercise, but here we are.

But through her inspiring personal story and realistic approach she's already inspired thousands of men and women to manage their mental health through exercise. I read this book during an anxious period and skimmed these sections as they heightened my own anxiety. Following years of suffering with anxiety, but not knowing and trying to ignore it, came to a head when Mackie's husband of a year left her. Exercise has long been hailed as a solution to all, and of course everyone’s experience of mental illness is different and must be considered on an individual basis, however for me, running has really helped alleviate a lot of my symptoms and I found this book to be really comforting and relatable, and a reminder to just do what works.

I found it to be very relatable and a really honest account of Bella's journey with her mental health. There is nothing that beats being out at night, in the cold air, flying down steep hills and the sense of achievement when you brace yourself for the uphill and make it; our bodies are a marvel.
