Recommended Books About Overeating & the Highly Sensitive Person/Empath
To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting. ~Edmund Burke
Meet the list of books I have been compiling for some time now. They have been falling in my lap in the most synchronistic of ways over the past year and I am dying to read them with you.
I have created this virtual book club for three very important reasons:
One, I L.O.V.E. to read.
Two, the books I am called to read as of late, are books surrounding the trait of high sensitivity. I find the more knowledge I acquire about being an HSP; the more able I am to flourish in the world and I want you to flourish too.
And three, I tend to read books with haste. I can’t soak up knowledge fast enough. I find myself turning the last page with a slight discontent that I failed to savor and truly engage with the pages that I just raced through. That said, the virtual book club was born with the intention of slowing down my reading. (Similar to the way my emotional eating practice was born with the intention of slowing down around food. Ironic, eh?)
Slow down with me. Be present. Engage.
