After years of struggling with eating disorders and anxiety around food and eating, Annie Mahon figured that having a path, any path, would be helpful. When she read The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh, she found a path that not only changed her (and her family’s) relationship with food, but also transformed nearly every aspect of her life. In Things I Did When I Was Hangry, Annie shares her path to mindful cooking and eating. The tools Mahon offers fit together like a wheel, rather than sequential steps. Readers are invited to just jump in and take what works for them. Each section has a short humorous story about Annie’s own journey toward more conscious cooking and eating. She shares practices for developing mindfulness that will support more ease around food, and journal questions to help you look more deeply at the roots of your thinking about food, cooking, and eating. Simple, delicious, vegan recipes complement each section, demonstrating mindful alternatives for every meal and many eating challenges, including eating at work and school, eating at restaurants and on vacation, and mindfully feeding friends and entertaining. Mindful eating has been shown to improve body acceptance, diminish negative self-talk and support weight loss. Mindful cooking is a mindfulness practice in itself, creating more ease in our day-to-day lives. Annie Mahon’s recipes and suggestions are scaffolding anyone can use to build their own mindful kitchen and eating practices.

Do you know someone who is overly arrogant, shows an extreme lack of empathy, or exhibits an inflated sense of entitlement? Do they exploit others, or engage in magical thinking? These are all traits of narcissistic personality disorder, and when it comes to dealing with narcissists, it can be difficult to get your point across. So how do you handle the narcissistic people in your life? You might interact with them in social or professional settings, and you might even love one—so ignoring them isn’t really a practical solution. They're frustrating, and maybe even intimidating, but ultimately, you need to find a way of communicating effectively with them. Disarming the Narcissist, Second Edition, will show you how to move past the narcissist's defenses using compassionate, empathetic communication. You'll learn how narcissists view the world, how to navigate their coping styles, and why, oftentimes, it's sad and lonely being a narcissist. By learning to anticipate and avoid certain hot-button issues, you'll be able to relate to narcissists without triggering aggression. By validating some common narcissistic concerns, you'll also find out how to be heard in conversation with a narcissist. This book will help you learn to meet your own needs while side-stepping unproductive power struggles and senseless arguments with someone who is at the center of his or her own universe. This new edition also includes new chapters on dealing with narcissistic women, aggressive and abusive narcissists, strategies for safety, and the link between narcissism and sex addiction. Finally, you'll learn how to set limits with your narcissist and when it's time to draw the line on unacceptable behavior.
