31 Oklahoma Trails for a Mental Health Run

Though it can be hard to feel like getting out of bed when you’re living with anxiety or depression, one of the best activities you can do for your mental health is exercise. Moving your body just 30 minutes a day three to five times a week could offer some relief from symptoms, according to the Mayo Clinic.

But you don’t need weights or a fancy gym membership to get the blood pumping. Running is one of the most accessible ways to get those feel-good endorphins flowing. Plus, you can take in all the beautiful parks and hiking trails that make living in Oklahoma so great!

The next time you need to clear your head, take your pick from the 988 Mental Health Lifeline’s 31 best places to go for a run in Oklahoma.
