Well-being for Highly Sensitive People

Most highly sensitive people (HSPs) do not understand how their sensitive nervous systems work, and how it effects so much of our well-being — from sleep and focus to happiness and work. Let’s get you some basics to support your well-being as a highly sensitive person.

HSP well-being
HSPs can be sensitive and strong and wonderful at the same time, like a bright pink flower.

First: There’s nothing to fix about you.

You’re wired this way for a reason. There’s a lot of gold here. However, HSPs need to understand how to work with this fine-tuned brain and body.

Taking time to learn has made a huge difference for me as a highly sensitive person. I now know how I can minimize the challenges of it, and benefit from my HSP superpowers.

Our superpowers often include:

  1. An exquisite ability to understand how others are feeling and to read the room.
  2. Deep enjoyment of beauty, nature, and positive surroundings. (People around us get to enjoy our enthusiasm and appreciation.)
  3. Seeing more details and sensing things like sounds and smells that others miss. (Like a great detective.)

These are all useful skills to have, and there are more. Of course these traits, like any traits, could have challenging sides too. So I’ve got some helpful tools and learning options for HSPs below.
