Are you highly sensitive?

Highly sensitive people (HSPs) are individuals with a highly sensitive nervous system, which makes them more responsive to sensory stimuli.

HSPs are recognised by their ability to feel deeply for others, excel at creative activites, and make connections that others do not see. It is important to note that high sensitivity is not a mental illness but a biological trait, and understanding more about it can be of great help to you if you think you have it or know someone who does.

One of the benefits of being a HSP is having high emotional intelligence. Additionally, HSPs have a rich inner life, which enables them to appreciate art, music, and other forms of beauty more deeply than others.

For people who are highly sensitive to lead a happy life, it’s essential to avoid stress triggers such as negative media, and learn how to say no, which can be challenging for HSPs, given their high empathy levels. Also, creating a safe space where one can retreat and relax, whether it is a corner of the garden or a quiet room, is a crucial for wellbeing.

It is interesting to note that many famous people, including Elton John, Frida Kahlo, Princess Diana, and Neil Young, are HSPs. These individuals have used their sensitivity to create art, music, and make a positive impact on the world. Being an HSP may come with its challenges, but it is a unique and valuable trait that can bring many benefits to one’s life.
