The 7 Small Habits Of The People Who Feel Less Overwhelmed By Life

Spread the love

Do you frequently feel overstimulated by everything around you? Have you ever had the impression that you are special in some way? Have you ever been overstimulated by other people and life’s activities? Have you ever been criticized by others for being overly sensitive or “shy”?

Like myself, 15% of people may fall into the category known as “highly sensitive persons” (HSPs). No big deal; your keen instincts indicate that you’re a very wonderful person. It’s an evolved survival mechanism that makes you aware of all the little things and advantages this offers.

These are the seven little routines of those who are least overwhelmed by life:

1. They work out frequently

Many people might think that working out makes an already difficult day even more unpleasant. This is untrue. The body and mind can only be strengthened via exercise. Training introduces positive chemicals that result in calmer, clearer thinking and an uplifted attitude.

Exercise is important because HSPs are more likely to lead sedentary lives. Ideally, a sweat-producing, intense workout. Toxins have been discovered to exacerbate my nervous system reaction, and sweat releases them. I’m more prone to anxiety because of this, therefore exercise is essential. This will help, even if it’s just a 15-minute stroll—especially outside in the sun.

2. They make time for themselves.

Our need to consistently engage with other people is essential. As social creatures, we cannot allow our HSP status to allow us to live a life of seclusion. But I think it’s important to establish the daily practice of spending at least an hour alone yourself. Take a stroll in the park during your lunch break, for instance.

We may unwind after social stimulation and use our strong internal processing and unhindered creativity when we have some alone time. It also gives us the energy and strength to be more productive when we are among other people again.

3. They journal

I have a strong analytical mind and have a tendency to overthink and carry a lot of thoughts. I’ve found that journaling and writing notes are effective ways to counteract this, and I use both on a daily basis to release a lot of my anxieties, uncertainties, and problems.

As I write down my worries, the act reduces my anxiety and facilitates the development of constructive answers. I usually figure out the solution. Recording some of the day’s accomplishments and experiences—no matter how minor—is also satisfying because it gives you a nice feeling of accumulation and allows you to have a record for later.

4. They replenish

We react to life’s challenges and stimuli more quickly because we have a documentedly more active neural system. Maintaining homeostasis requires more frequent recharging.

Although it’s not always essential, I find that taking a small 12-minute nap around lunchtime helps me unwind and revitalizes my body and mind for the remainder of the day.

5. They engage in meditation

I meditate for eight minutes every morning. It’s not much, and I could accomplish much more, but it gives me my daily equilibrium. I also try to be as aware of my environment as I can during the day, taking note of the sights and sounds I come across. As I tend to do, I frequently let go of the urge to ruminate on ideas. This calms me down and makes a huge difference.

If HSPs neglect to do this, they risk becoming as old as a clock as the day goes on, which is quite unhealthy. Use your enhanced sensory abilities. Inhale. Stay in the moment.

6. They study

This may seem like less of a priority to many, and it may be. Whether I’m reading a few pages of fiction or non-fiction, it remains a crucial part of my daily routine. If I don’t provide my creative and active mind with fresh concepts and images, I’m more prone to let my attention wander unhelpfully—that is, toward worry.

If reading isn’t your thing, try anything that provides a non-stimulating diversion, like a wordle or a game of sudoku.

7. They yearn to express themselves

Living an inwardly focused life can cause us to lose sight of our external self-expression. Without this release, life may become stifled and dismal. Years of expressing myself through my sensitivity have taught me that when I don’t create or express myself for a time, a void appears.

We cannot spend our entire day in a room pondering. The ability to create, play, and express oneself is human. For me, it’s writing, painting, and video presentations, but it’s also important to regularly express yourself to friends.
