‘Top 10 Survival Tips for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)’

Featured in an article a few months ago, Susan Biali, M.D. posted an article with many very practical tips for assisting HSPs in their day to day activities.

Here is a brief synopsis (from the article):

1) Get enough sleep

2) Eat healthy foods regularly throughout the day

3) Wear noise-reducing headphones

4) Plan in decompression time

5) Have at least one quiet room or space to retreat to in your home

6) Give yourself time and space to get things done

7) Limit caffeine

8) Keep the lights down low

9) Get things done in off hours

10) Surround yourself with beauty and nature

For the practical application of these tips, as well as the full text of the article please check out this link:

Please comment on what seems to work for you from this list.






  1. I would like to see an article, or series of articles, oulining the aspects of HSP. How do we recognize ourselves? How do we recognize others with HSP? What does research say? Other than Meet-ups are there other groups focused on HSP? What are approaches we can use/implement to help us “fit in”?

    • Good Morning…Thanks for the great questions. I will post soon with some ideas that address your questions.
