    Adventures with the Grandchildren: One of the Perks of Getting Older

    Adventures with the Grandchildren: One of the Perks of Getting Older

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m talking about a new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Young at Heart. This book covers a little bit of everything but the overarching theme is dynamic aging, getting older gracefully, and having lots of fun while doing it. One of the fun parts of getting older is having grandchildren or grand nephews and nieces, and today I’m going to share two stories about that, including one about a literal accidental meeting with country singer Loretta Lynn.

    Six Ways to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Six Ways to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m going to share six ways to step outside your comfort zone, with stories from Chicken Soup for the Soul: Get Out of Your Comfort Zone. This is one of my favorite pieces of advice from the world of Chicken Soup for the Soul: to try new things --even if they’re scary. I find it so empowering and energizing when I do new things—even something as simple as shopping at a different grocery store. And of course there are the big things, too, like taking a vacation in a country I’ve never been to before. I am constantly reminding myself to make a habit of saying yes to new things, because otherwise my world will accidentally get narrower and narrower.

Just the right length

I like how these are short pieces that I can listen to when I have a few spare minutes. Even though they’re short, they’re filled with a lot of wisdom and often humor.
