Stress Relief Through Running and Hiking – Two Dramatic Examples

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your daily dose of Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration. It’s summer and it’s time to get yourself on your feet and outside. If you’ve been thinking about getting into a regular routine of running or walking, I have the stories to motivate you today, from our newest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Running for Good. It was my coauthor Dean Karnazes who suggested the title Running for Good, and we’re not just talking about how running is good for your fitness, or how you can run to raise money for good causes, but also because running is good for your emotionally. I want to share two stories today from people who used running and hiking to manage their stress, and how it worked in quite a dramatic way.

Start your days with inspiration and motivation from the best of Chicken Soup for the Soul and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark. There's nothing like learning from the personal, revealing stories of other people. Amy shares her favorite stories and the wisdom, advice, and easy-to-implement tips that thousands of people have shared in 25 + years of Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Tips and advice on Mondays and Wednesdays, and interviews with fascinating writers and influencers on Friend Fridays. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul to go!
