Walking and Running as Therapy

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. One of the themes in the book is how effective running is as a therapy. So many of our writers talk about how running… or hiking… or walking helped them overcome stress, or anxiety, or depression—even PTSD. And it works equally well for men or women.

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!
