Nourished is a great read, better than that it is a great tool to help you examine your life. Dr. Daniel Amen, MD called Nourished a “delightful, practical brain tonic for women dealing with every day stresses.” I found Nourished to be a fun read but also tool to help me examine my life and see if I am taking the time to nourish myself while living this crazy busy thing we call life.
The authors, Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph, share that they wrote the book from moments of their own complete overwhelm in which they realized that if they did not start practicing nourishing routines, they would sink. They also knew they were not alone.
Becky and Rachel state on page 12 “we will share not only successes but our failures, because as women who love to laugh, we find it is usually the miserable flops that make the most hilarious stories. In addition, failures have a way of teaching their own searing brand of lessons we never forget.”
Becky and Rachel did an informal survey of the “daily stuff” that stressed out their friends. Here are the Top Ten Stressors of Women composed from all that data.
If you were to rank your satisfaction with each of these 10 areas of your life what would it look like. 1 being I am extremely Unhappy with this area, 10 meaning Perfection, there is nothing I would change in this area of my life.
How happy are you with your scores? Are there areas would like to see higher? Becky and Rachel share how they addressed these areas in their lives in this easy to read witty, warm, encouraging and wise book.
