Move your mind, uplift the world.

ASICS invites you to experience the uplifting power of sport and be part of the world’s first live study into the impact of movement on the mind. Starting on Global Running Day 2021, we are aiming to move one million minds around the world.

Just 15.09 minutes of exercise to uplift the mind

Thanks to thousands of people who have participated in ASICS’ Uplifting Minds study, the data shows it could take only 15 minutes and 9 seconds of exercise to uplift the mind.

The findings are part of a live, global study, overseen by leading movement and mental health researcher Professor Brendon Stubbs.

Mind Race

What happens to our state of mind when we don’t exercise?

As well as pinpointing the mental effects of physical activity, the research also studied the mental impact of inactivity.

We monitored the state of mind of volunteers who agreed to pause their regular exercise routine for just one week.

The results show how essential exercise is to maintain positive mental wellbeing and how 15.09 minutes can make all the difference.
