HSP BlogMy blog will touch upon many topics for treating body/mind/spirit, from diet and exercise to coping, discovering, appreciating, accepting and healing.
HSPs need to create their own Spiritual Sanctuary … a gift to ourselves as we have earned the right to a more contented life!
You must find YOUR ideal environment that will lead to a healthier body, mind and spirit. You can CHOOSE to make it happen!
Question your doctors. Question those who do not take your trait seriously. It is important for HSPs to empower themselves and advocate for their mental and physical health!
It is a major ordeal for anyone to undergo invasive surgery. However, for highly sensitive people the result can be a longer recovery and healing time. It is important to have health care providers that understand these differences.

As a HSP, many of the disorders — manifestations of a punishing lifestyle — have subsided or are in the midst of being healed in this paradise … the place I now call home.
This profound trait led me to my paradise — the highly sensitive Big Island of Hawaii. I still have trying moments. However, the majority of time I enjoy the deepest contentment, joy and mental/physical/spiritual health I could have ever imagined.

As my highly sensitive mother would say to me “you’re a deep thinker and you walk to your own drummer.” That is a perfect description of HSPs and also why I want to help other HSPs pursue their goals and dreams.
While all my peers cried their eyes out because graduation meant leaving all their friends, I cried just as hard except for a different reason — RELIEF! I am only now beginning to recognize and reconcile the scars and wounds from those trying years.
