Why Movement is Medicine for Highly Sensitive People (podcast)

March 15, 2016

The world of movement and exercise can be an odd one. “Personal Training” often brings to mind a world of body building, instructors yelling at you to do more push-ups and other “fun stuff” like that, ahem.

Healthy Performance: pulling the plug on overachieving

July 31, 2011

I used to be a gotta-do-things-right-or-not-at-all person. And I always worked hard and did well. Then I became ill and where before I could read and analyze difficult academic texts for hours, now (read: 2009) my head started spinning after 1/2 hour of light reading of any kind. So, I needed to tweak my performance […]

Is Being HSP Expensive? Episode 1: organic food.

November 29, 2011

I eat mostly organic food. As a sensitive person, I notice the difference. I feel better when I eat food that has been given time to grow and NOT been sprayed with crap. It also makes a lot more sense, intellectually, sustainably, how-things-workably. I’ve often been asked: “Isn’t that (VERY) expensive???”. It depends. Basically, my […]

Do You Feel Heard? Why & How it Helps to Listen to Yourself First

June 22, 2012

Just as it takes courage to really hear what someone else is saying, it also takes courage to listen to ourselves. It takes saying NO to a lot of distractions, to clear a space, daily, in which we can actually hear ourselves. A space in which our own voices and needs don’t get drowned out […]

Why Healing Yourself Takes Time

April 16, 2013

Healing yourself is a layered undertaking. I’ve had clients ask me: why can’t we just identify the root issue (and have the whole thing over with) ? It seems like a logical request. If you know that underneath all the rubble, there is just one (or perhaps a few) core issues that are generating all […]

The Opposite of HSP Happiness is Guilt

November 19, 2013

Happiness requires making positive choices for ourselves. We all have things in our life that make us happy, when we allow ourselves to choose/have those things. So the question isn’t: “how can I be happy no matter what I choose?” rather, the question is: “what is in the way of choosing the things that make […]
