As a fitness enthusiast, I've often wondered if running could be considered a form of qigong. Qigong, an ancient Chinese practice, focuses on cultivating and balancing the body's energy through movement, breath, and meditation. Although running may not offer the same meditative aspect, it does improve our overall well-being and energy levels. By incorporating mindfulness and deep breaths, we might just be able to bridge the gap between running and qigong. So, while running may not be a traditional form of qigong, it can certainly share some of its benefits when approached with the right mindset.
