Vanity Can Help Improve Your PCOS Health

Watching your reflection in a mirror as you run on a treadmill can help you co-ordinate your limbs. This allows you to run more smoothly to achieve better weight control and can lead to improved management of your PCOS symptoms.
 
But the process involves a law of diminishing returns and may eventually lead to a decrease in performance for more hard-core runners who found seeing their image became a distraction, says a new study.
 
Daniel Eaves, program leader for Sports Psychology at Britain’s Teesside University, who led the study, said that, if a person has just taken up running, mirrors are a good way of developing their style.
 
“What we see influences how we co-ordinate our limbs. If you are just getting into running, then mirrors may be ideal for developing your style and performing a less demanding run,” he said.
 
Experienced runners, however, who want to train harder, may find their reflection becomes a distraction and will benefit from not looking in a mirror, added Mr. Eaves.
