How much activity is good for you?

How much activity is good for you? This question can be answered in many ways because we are all different. What kinds of activities take an emotional and physical toll on your mind and body? What types of activities uplift and energize you?

Are you bored?

A state of boredom is a certain sign that we are allowing some of our talents to lie idle or rust. A unfulfilling job or career, a personal relationship, lack of interests, or a need for new ones could be symptoms of our boredom. Maybe you feel that you need a change of scenery. Perhaps you might like to move to a different state or country. Boredom symbolizes a state of unrest.

It’s not unusual to experience boredom, but it shouldn’t be long-lasting. Chronic boredom can have many serious consequences. It often leads to heightened feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and even depression.

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.

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…)

Are HSPs More Prone to Health Issues?

I’ve been asked this question many times. Since I’m not a medical professional, I don’t have a definitive answer. I do know from personal experience, that if I have prolonged stress, my immune system is not working as well as it should.

I’m a highly sensitive person that’s like a human sponge that takes in everything around me. I exercise more self-care when life become too overwhelming. Being highly sensitive isn’t a character flaw or  weakness. It’s a natural way of being. The more I understand myself, the sooner I take precautions to prevent physical/emotional illness/disease.
