Being an empath is the new normal. The Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff, MD, is a perfect guide book. Now people will know how to cope with being highly sensitive and empathic in their everyday lives without developing exhaustion, compassion fatigue, or burnout. As Judith says, conventional medicine often pathologizes sensitivity, but now you will see it as the gift it truly is.

Cover The Empath's Survival Guide Life Strategies for Sensitive People

Empaths are sponges who absorb other people’s emotions and symptoms. Judith offers a wealth of practical strategies to stop absorbing other people’s stress while keeping your sensitivities open and alive. She addresses the special needs of empaths—such as getting adequate alone time, setting clear limits with people, and grounding—in areas such as health, work, parenting and raising empathic children, and combating narcissists and other energy vampires, as well as in love and all relationships. Also, empaths can develop heightened intuition, which they must learn to cope with in a grounded way. Judith discusses plant empaths, earth empaths, relationships empaths, telepathic and precognitive empaths, food empaths, and more.

The secret to a happy life for everyone who wants to nurture their empathic abilities in an often overwhelming world is to practice the self-protection strategies in this book. Judith’s book validates the truth that empaths experience the world around them primarily through their energetic or intuitive senses. Such knowledge is vital to understanding and caring for your own awakening sensitivities.
