Summary

Do you feel too sensitive for this world? Are you at the mercy of your emotions, overwhelmed by your environment, and easily triggered by other people’s feelings?

You aren’t alone. Millions of highly sensitive people (HSP) feel exactly the same way.

If you’ve always felt more delicate, more easily overwhelmed by sensory input, and more empathetic than those around you, you are probably an HSP. Sensitivity is a blessing, but it’s hard to thrive as an HSP in a competitive society that perceives emotional expression as a sign of weakness.

So how do you develop the skills and tools you need to successfully navigate your way through life as an HSP? As someone attuned to the emotions of everyone around you, how can you protect yourself against emotional overwhelm, negative energy, and psychological distress?

In The Highly Sensitive: How to Stop Emotional Overload, Relieve Anxiety, and Eliminate Negative Energy, you will discover why high sensitivity is a gift that requires careful management. You will learn how to solve the common problems faced by HSPs the world over and how to live a happy, fulfilling life that lets you use your abilities to the fullest. Specifically, you will discover: 

  • What it means to be an HSP and what sets HSPs apart from the general population
  • How to cope with emotional overwhelm
  • How to protect yourself from the negative energy of other people
  • How to cleanse yourself of toxic energy and live in harmony with your environment
  • How to form healthy relationships
  • How to set boundaries and say “no” to people and situations that are not right for you

Empower yourself by downloading this invaluable guide to living as an HSP. Within just a few hours, you will develop an in-depth understanding of your true self and begin to realize your full potential. 

This book is packed with helpful advice and strategies you can use to live a balanced and meaningful life as an HSP. You can start implementing the simple yet powerful techniques in this book today!

Its Amazing

This book got me started with Ayurveda, and though I have only begun to understand it, I have purchased another book from Amazon called The Complete Book of Ayurveda Home Remedies by Vasant Lad and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

Well written

Gave me lots of insight about the way I am. Removed the guilt and shame feelings, brought lots of relief, acceptance, and serenity. I am very happy that there are people like the author who are dedicated to helping highly sensitive people like me to find a place in life.

This Book Changed My Life

This book changed my life. I have been told so many times that I'm just too sensitive. This book explains why there are sensitive souls in the universe and their collective purpose in this world. I went from hating that I was an HSP to knowing how much of a blessing it truly is. Judy Dyer is a delight.

Five Stars

I always knew that I was highly sensitive, and I am learning a lot from reading this book. It is clarifying a good deal about what and why I experienced what I did, the way that I did when I was younger. I have recommended this book to a number of my friends who are dealing with or are themselves highly sensitive individuals. The book is quite readable and would be a good resource for anyone who is sensitive or wants to learn about sensitive people.

Amazing Book

Wow! This book has been so instrumental in helping me to discover the Pluses of my Sensitive self and to accept myself as I am. I am also introverted and living in a culture that highly encourages extroversion, noise, and toughness, I have always felt less than the quick, loud, and even handicapped.

Thank You For This Amazing Book

This book has changed my life! It has given me such incredible inner peace. It has given me such an understanding of all of the things that have happened in my life that I thought were so difficult and pegged as bad experiences. I realize that I have just been managing my life in the wrong way, and with acceptance and understanding, I can organize my life in a much more comfortable way that works for me. I would highly recommend this book to any highly sensitive person and those who have highly sensitive people in their lives. Thank you for this amazing book!

Things You Probably Already Know

If you are an empath or HSP, you are probably already pretty self aware. This book didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. This book would be good for non HSPs to read in order to understand their HSP friends, partners, and family.

Wonderful book. The author provides a refreshingly freeing perspective for me, a previously discouraged HSP. Excellent for anyone who is sensitive, and those who live with or love an HSP.

Very Handy Book

The author covers every aspect of those of us with sensitive natures. The content on the advisor-to-those-who-rule-or-lead role makes an important contribution to our larger society and an uplifting nod to us who so often feel misunderstood by them.

Excellent Book

Thorough, well written. The author presents well-researched material in an approachable manner, with a refreshing, non-pathological focus. The exercises offered at the ends of her chapters are excellent, useful to those working with counseling professionals, or not.

Wonderfully Written

I liked this book a lot because I have always wondered why noises, movements, odors, cruelty to anyone, etc. upset me more than other people I was with and also that I don't like to be around people all the time but need to regroup inside myself.
