How Sensitive People Can Protect Themselves


Remember, sensitivity is a gift, but it also requires extra care. By being aware of your needs and taking steps to protect your energy, you can stay emotionally healthy.

Here are some helpful tips:

  1. Know your limits: Sensitive people often have lower emotional thresholds, so it’s important to know your limits and recognize when you’re starting to feel overwhelmed.
  2. Practice self-care: Self-care is crucial for sensitive people, so make sure you take the time to rest, relax, and recharge. This might include taking a quiet walk outdoors, reading a book, or practicing meditation or other mindfulness exercises.
  3. Avoid overstimulation: Limit your exposure to things that can overstimulate your sense, such as loud noises, bright lights, or strong smells.
  4. Create healthy boundaries: Learn to say “no” when you need to, and set healthy boundaries with others to protect your emotional well-being.
  5. Surround yourself with supportive people: It’s important to have a support system of people who understand and accept your sensitivity. Surround yourself with people who uplift and encourage you, and avoid people who drain your energy.
  6. Seek professional help if necessary: Consult with a therapist or mental health professional, who can help you develop coping strategies to manage emotions and control feelings of overwhelm.

  1. These are good guidelines for those of us in the arts. We need that sensitivity to show in our work yet can be overwhelmed.

    Thanks for this beautiful post. I’m a hyper-sensitive empath. I feel/sense so much. Overstimulation is overwhelming so I crave my alone time. And boundaries are so important. What I recently learned is just because a friend likes you (or says they do), it doesn’t mean they are a good friend. Toxicity shows up in strange ways and some friendships won’t flow with no matter how much we try and no matter how many chances we give a person.
