Makes you happier and Improves your Confidence

It leaves the runner with a greater sense of self-esteem and adds a boost to the confidence which in turn makes the person feel empowered and ready to achieve anything.  If you have had a bad day, running will lift your mood.

Running is shown to have affected the stress level of the person massively. If you run the chances of you getting stress headaches is diminished. Since running helps in reducing stress, it indirectly brings back the appetite and helps the person to sleep better.
