How To Manage Sensitivity In Current Times: 11 Tips

Eleven tips:

  1. Spend time alone and in low technology places, doing something focused, away from the screen, such as meditation, walking, writing in a notebook, drawing on paper, playing an unplugged instrument, singing, crafting, cooking, etc.                                                                   chayawritingorangecrema
  2. Spend time with people screen-free as much as possible. When with friends or socializing, resist the temptation to use your phone, text, look things up etc. You may need to socialize more and meet new people. Find people who will give you their attention, who don’t need to be constantly on their screens.
  3. More time in nature. Eat wild edible plants, sit in the sun, walk outside and do outdoor activity in non urban areas as much as possible.                                                            thimbleberries
  4. Spend time with children, especially if you don’t have any.
  5. Watch wild animals. Sit and observe a bird for a few minutes or longer. Refrain from taking photos sometimes and simply observe (except in this case ;)).                                                                     duckcapitollake
  6. Cook and prepare your own food whenever possible.
  7. Allow yourself to take respite from cities, crowds, the public, technology, even parties, frequently. You may have less tolerance for these things. Recognize this is natural as the amount of EMFs, wifi and radiation have increased exponentially.
  8. Turn your phone and other electronics of or onto airplane mode as frequently as possible.
  9. Cultivate and value your sensitivity rather than trying to numb it out with addictions. Find outlets and ways to share your genuine self and creativity with the world. Keep searching if you haven’t found them yet. A lot of people are needing to recreate their lives and surroundings to keep up with their actual needs in these times. Some things are easier to come by, like online “friends” and lots of emails, but some are harder, like quality time with friends in person, deep nature away from EMFs and mineral rich food. Make it a priority to meet your actual needs and the rest will flow from there.
  10. Take really good care of your health. It’s harder than ever to be passively healthy, but easier than ever to get personal health information, access all kinds of health foods and empower yourself to make good choices. You won’t stay healthy unless you take an active role in making good health decisions.
  11. Release addictive substances when possible. As a sensitive person, you have a great capacity for deep peace, without any substances, so seek to avoid, when possible, things that you tend to overdo such as sugar, alcohol, pharmaceuticals and other toxins. It’s absolutely okay to use these in small amounts as needed, if they uplift you or resolve some kind of emergency, but be wary of cycles of addiction as your sensitivity thrives on homeostasis, stability and health.

    Hi Chaya,

    My friend’s name is Isabel Tappan-deFrees. She is called Izzy.

    Her business is Buddy Barber. She seems to have a blog and also a business website. I am so thrilled to see that Puzzle’s photo is still up there in the blog. See if you can find her.

    Here’s the business website:

    Let me know if you have any trouble with these links. You can tell Izzy that Puzzle and I say hi and feel free to let her know I’m the one who led you to her.

    You can read the blog, it’s wicked nicely done. She’s an awesome person and Puzzle loves her. We are so far away now but I’m sure if Izzy appeared on the horizon Puzzle would go nuts as usual. Puzzle will be 9 years old this month. I cut her hair myself (Izzy knows how easy she is) but I am not very skilled at it. In honor of the memory of my friend Tex. who died last April, I use Tex’s electric razor sometimes, which has a beard attachment. Puzzle likes the way it sounds. I still cook Puzzle’s food. She loves Uruguayan beef, which is known to be the best in the world. She has many friends here, loves the sights and sounds, and is thrilled to go out to a nearby field and run every single day.
