Do you have enough alone time?

Do you have enough alone time? A common theme among us highly sensitive people is that we enjoy being by ourselves. It allows us to have quiet time, which can sometimes be essential to re-charging our emotional and physical batteries and honing our creativity.

How can you improve your memory at any age?

As highly sensitive people, we love to learn and think deeply, so improving memory and maintaining our brain power for as long as possible should always be a priority! I recently read an article by Drs. Oz and Roisen on improving memory at any age. Below are their thoughts:

Brain scientists love to say the brain is “plastic,” which means it’s flexible and capable of growing new cells and making strong new connections between them, at any age. That means brain-friendly lifestyle changes can help ward off memory problems. Here are some lifestyle upgrades:

Would you like to think better?

Have you ever been so overwhelmed and frazzled that you can’t think straight? If you’re like me and many other highly sensitive people, I’m sure that you can relate to this situation.

Don’t worry, your brain power boost is only a few simple steps away. The tips below will help you in your quest to keep your brain working better.

  • Engage in a Regular Exercise. Do simple exercises like a short walk or jog. It doesn’t have to be as intense as a full-blown work-out. You just have to keep your body active. Simple work-outs on a regular basis will trigger the release of neuro-chemicals known as endorphins. These chemicals make you feel happy and more relaxed.
  • Use your Brain. If you exercise your body, you should also exercise your brain. The more often you use your brain muscles, the easier it will be to think and learn. You can read, do crossword puzzles, or even play educational games. Perhaps you can do research on topics of interest, ponder complex issues, write articles, or journal your thoughts. Any activity that can keep your brain working will give you a mental boost. (more…)
