How To Thrive As A Highly Sensitive Person

Thrive As Highly Sensitive Person

Being a Highly Sensitive Person can get emotionally, mentally, and psychologically exhausting at times, and that is why you should always practice habits and behaviors that will help you thrive in life.

As a highly sensitive, empathic person, I know firsthand the struggles highly sensitive people face daily. The world can feel overwhelming, especially when you are not taking care of yourself.

Since most of us never knew growing up that we were HSP we also did not learn how to properly take care of ourselves. Here are some tips all HSP must do in order to keep ourselves healthy and in a good space.

Here Is How To Thrive As A Highly Sensitive Person

1. Self-Care.

The most important thing a highly sensitive person can do is to practice self-care. Make sure you are eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, moving your body, and connecting to a hobby you love.

When an HSP is out of balance, anxiety tends to spike, so make sure to keep your blood sugar balanced and stress levels managed by practicing mindfulness and positive affirmations.

2. Embrace the advantages.

Absorbing other peoples’ energies, intuitively knowing what another person is feeling — all that sounds like a superpower! It is pretty amazing being an HSP!

Embrace this unique part of yourself; don’t dwell on some of the negativity that may come up around being an HSP.

3. Set boundaries.

Highly sensitive people are not the biggest fans of large events and parties. Sometimes life requires you to attend events for work or a family function.

Before the event, communicate with your partner or colleague, or family member that you will be going to the event for x amount of time. That way, this person can depend on you being present at the event for the set time.

How Forced Masculinity Affects Highly Sensitive Men

Forced masculinity affects so many men, yet most of them feel uncomfortable to speak up about it. Being a sensitive man is not a weakness, rather it’s a strength not many men possess. It’s high time highly sensitive men feel comfortable with their emotions, and being a highly sensitive man is not associated with being a “loser”.

Key Points:

Just as many men are highly sensitive people (HSPs) as women.

False ideas around masculinity cause HSP boys and men to mask their sensitivity.

Honoring sensitivity teaches healthy messaging around boundaries and consent.
