How Do Highly Sensitive People Relax? – The Burning Question!


I am tired from having my wisdom tooth out a few days ago. My son (9)  is tired from taking on some of my trauma and putting so much energy into trying to create animations on his computer. My husband is tired from taking up the slack in our home because me and my son are tired!

Do you ever have this situation?

My husband isn’t highly sensitive so he is able just to find something to do that is a bit low key. But my son and I don’t find this so easy. Today we sat and thought of loads of things we could do and rejected them one by one – painting, craft, dance, yoga, healing touch, music, playing with water, playing with marbles… We rejected them all. The reason is because all of them are stimulating. But it is not as simple as this because even when we are tired we crave stimulation. It’s just finding the right kind of stimulation that is the challenge.

Thankfully today my husband said he was going to make bread. My son jumped at the opportunity and said he would make bread too. He was desperate to make some bread animals. I breathed a sigh of relief and then thought of this post to write. Writing my little stories and journeys is the right kind of stimulation for me today. 

Do us highly sensitives ever relax and switch off or is our mission just to keep finding the right kind of stimulation? Maybe the latter is our relaxation!  The more connected we feel with ourselves and the world the more relaxed we are.

Hi. Welcome to my blog. I am a visionary and my vision is to see more people healthy, happy and fulfilled. My Insights: Relationship is bigger than the interaction. Creativity is bigger than the project. Journey is bigger than the plans of the day. Vulnerability is the new self-sufficiency. Feeling good enough is the new enlightenment. Attachment is the new detachment. Sensitivity is being alive - Soulfulness is our deep heart-felt response to being alive. Separation is the biggest cause of dis-ease. Healing is transformation. The Christian message is an invitation to a warm embrace with God.
