Today I’m talking about my three top tips for surviving as a sensitive soul in this chaotic world that we’re living in. Now, if you’re anything like me and you’re sensitive to people or your environment or foods, I’m guessing that you’re experiencing a bit of discomfort at the moment.
Limit Media Consumption
So I’m going to start with tip one, which is limiting your media consumption. Now we’re all consumers of media, and there is so much around: magazines and billboards and posters and you name it. I suggest turning off the television, limiting your radio listening. With social media, I think it’s really easy for us to get caught up in the doom scrolling and, reacting to posts on social media. So what I suggest is that you limit the number of pages or people that you follow and also limit the amount of time that you spend on social media so that you can disconnect from that, sensationalistic perception of what’s going on in the world.
Surround Yourself with Positivity
Straight into tip number two, which is surrounding yourself with positivity. Now I’m not suggesting that you sugarcoat everything and pretend that there’s not any bad stuff going on in the world. Where there are negative influences in your life, and that can be friends or family, or it can be social media too, you want to limit your contact with those kinds of people. So by doing that, a lot of it is about setting clear and healthy boundaries in relationships and keeping a certain amount of separateness from people who perhaps might drag down your energy. And what you want to do is surround yourself with people that help to lift you up help to encourage you with your passions, who lighten up your energy and are able to support you.
Even if you are feeling a bit down about things as well, the kinds of people that would listen to your concerns and not feel the need to judge or find a resolution to an issue. So the more that you surround yourself with people who interact with you in more of a positive, the more that you’ll find that you will be more authentic in yourself and or you feel more authentic in yourself and you’ll feel more balanced and energised as well.
Connect with Nature
So on to tip number three: connecting with nature. The more that our energy is drawn towards social media and what’s going on in the world, the more that we become unbalanced as well. So reconnecting ourselves with nature in whatever way you can do that on a day-to-day basis. So if you have a garden, do some gardening, if you have pets, play or pat them. If you’re able to go out and walk on the beach or go to a park or walk in the bush, any of those things so that you can ground your energy and support your nervous system so that you feel more calm and balanced within yourself.
So that’s it three quick tips on how to stay balanced and focused as a sensitive soul in this chaotic world: limit social media consumption, surrounding ourselves with positive influences and reconnecting with nature.
