Publisher's Summary

Food has the power to temporarily alleviate stress and sadness, enhance joy, and bring us comfort when we need it most. It's no wonder experts estimate that 75 percent of overeating is triggered by our emotions, not physical hunger. The good news is you can instead soothe yourself through dozens of mindful activities that are healthy for both body and mind.
Susan Albers, author of Eating Mindfully, now offers 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food, a collection of mindfulness skills and practices for relaxing the body in times of stress and ending your dependence on eating as a means of coping with difficult emotions. You'll not only discover easy ways to soothe urges to overeat, you'll also learn how to differentiate emotion-driven hunger from healthy hunger. Reach for this instead of the refrigerator next time you feel the urge to snack - these alternatives are just as satisfying!

Narration not to my taste

Would you try another book from Susan Albers and/or Ann Marie Lee?

Possibly, I'm generally not a huge fan of self-help books but Albers seems to have a knack for practical writing.

How could the performance have been better?

I am in no way being objective here, but something about the narration bugged me. It sounded a bit like how people talk to children. This was clear from the audio sample, but it really started to grind my gears as I got further into the book.

Any additional comments?

I liked the content of the book a lot. There are a lot of suggestions which I found personally helpful and which I will likely apply to my life - it's just that the narration was not my cup of tea.
