Love, Love, Love it!

Christiane Northrup has helped me to understand the importance of joy and pleasure. They're not just indulgences, they impact our hormones, sleep, relationships, how we show up in the world.
Christiane has a great voice, with humour and warmth bubbling throughout. I highly recommend this book.

Funny and wise

This talk is a reminder to women who tend to put themselves last and then find themselves empty. Cut it out! Listen to this and make it your job to apply the wisdom.

Inspiring and entertaining

Any additional comments?

This is not simply a read-aloud of a book, but a recording of an entertaining and inspiring talk presented to an audience. I found Dr. Northrup's honesty, insightfulness, and humor very enjoyable and thought-provoking. Why have we grown so suspicious of joy, and how can we begin to undo the programming that insists we feel guilty for "having too much fun." Important ideas for those of us seeking to experience more happiness in our lives. Isn't that eveyrone?

Bring the Joy

Christiane Northrup brings new awareness to the word Joy! I listened to this every day for 2 weeks. I own the thoughts that she wanted to share and take them with me each day. I have shared what I learned daily. Uplifting, inspiring and very informative. If you want Joy to be in the front of your thoughts you have found the intro.

She's funny, intelligent and well rounded. She's got a quick wit and deep insights- she sounds like someone I'd want to hang out with.

Gives you positive energy and picks your mind up!

I have had this Audible for three years now and totally lost the count on how many times I have listened to it. When I need the kick in my but and refreshing pep talk I listen. It gives me the mood boost that I need. It is funny, real and the laughter is healing. I start smiling and laugh and feel great afterwards. I even put on a happy music and dance a little. Trust me it works guys. I recommend it to all women experiencing the change.
My change started when I was 29 and I am not even 50 yet so my advise is to get the Audible and laugh with her. You will feel better. :-)

Joy is a Choice

I felt like I was listening in on a support group meeting where the members needed to be shown how to choose joy over negativity, apathy or mediocrity.
I will re-listen to this book until I no longer need a reminder to do the same.

It’s a talk, not a book.

Humorous and Informative presentation. I enjoy what she has to share as a medical doctor with a different bent on life and energy.

Phenomenal!

We should learn to love ourselves, to reverse all the negative energy collected throughout the years of living. In learning that we are dynamic within ourselves, helps to ward off negative physical and mental illnesses. Dr. Northrup has given us the formula, again.
