365 Days of Self-Care Meditations, Reflections, and Journaling Prompts as Inoculations Against Stress and Overwhelm
Empaths have so much to offer as healers, creatives, friends, lovers, and innovators at work. Yet highly sensitive and empathic people often give too much at the expense of their own well-being—and end up absorbing the stress of others. “To stay healthy and happy,” writes Dr. Judith Orloff, “you must be ready with daily self-care practices that work.” With Thriving as an Empath, Dr. Orloff provides an invaluable resource to help you protect yourself from the stresses of an overwhelming world and embrace the “gift of being different.”
Thriving as an Empath offers expert guidance for every day of the year, designed to cut through sensory overload and help you live well as a sensitive person. This new paperback edition brings you practices and support for becoming a compassionate, empowered empath, including setting strong boundaries, inoculating yourself against stress and overwhelm, self-soothing techniques, tapping the vitality of all four seasons and the elements, moving into “sacred time,” and much more.
Thriving as an Empath was created to help you grow and flourish without internalizing the emotions and pain of others. “These self-care techniques have been lifesaving for me and my patients,” writes Dr. Orloff. “I feel so strongly about regular self-care because I want you to enjoy the extraordinary gifts of sensitivity—including an open heart, intuition, and an intimate connection with the natural world.”
