NEW RELEASE: Self-Help Title from Dr. Linda R. Harper – “Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy in Everyday Giving”

What is the key to giving that energizes and fulfills us, rather than exhausts and
depletes us?
asks Dr. Linda Harper, Ph.D. in her latest work,
‘Give: A Guide to Discovering the Joy of Everyday Giving.’

     Daily life continually asks us to make choices about how to give—whether it is our attention, time, energy, talents, love, or even money—to others and to ourselves. Often, we juggle our attempts to meet our own needs and the demands of others. So the decisions we make about what, when, and how much to give, strongly impact the quality of our everyday lives. These choices can cause us stress, turmoil, guilt, exhaustion, and depletion—or they can bring us immeasurable joy, peace of mind, and fulfillment.
     Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you rediscover the joy in everyday giving using one question: What are my heart’s true desires at this very moment? ‘Give’ is not about giving more or giving less. It is about giving from your deepest self and trusting the natural wisdom of your heart’s desires. As you become the giver you were meant to be, you will deepen the meaning of your life through soulful, ordinary acts of giving—both to yourself and to others.

For over one hundred years, our culture has promoted dieting—with the goal of losing weight—as the acceptable way to eat. With this aim of weight loss, a diet determines your eating choices and in turn creates a thought system that prevents you from trusting your natural ability to make the right choices about eating. Our inner wisdom, or best self, quietly speaks to us through intuition, gut feelings, physical cravings and thoughts about the present moment, whereas beliefs focused on specific outcomes, such as weight loss-focused dieting, push their way to the forefront of our minds and block our ability to enjoy the present. The purpose of this book is to remove the barriers preventing you from accessing and trusting your own best self in choosing and creating each eating experience.

Eat provides the tools you need to remove the thoughts that are obstructing your inner wisdom and replace those thoughts with ones that will guide you back to everyday eating choices that stem from your best self. Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you access your best self and discover your natural and healthy relationship with food, leaving the rules of dieting behind.
