Episodios

  • 14: So. Much. Empathy

    14/10/2014

    Episode 14 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast is about empathy, which is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another being. I talk about wondering if Muay Thai fighters are lonely or sad, and crying about the tragedies of people I don't think I have a right to be that sad about.

  • 13: Obsessing over details

    07/10/2014

    In Episode 13 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I tell a story about obsessing over sliced vs. non-sliced challah bread. Will I ruin dinner? Or will everything be fine? The suspense is riveting. Then I cleverly segue into decision-making: HSPs analyze details in an effort to make good decisions, but sometimes this can turn into over-analysis, and analysis paralysis. The trick is to catch yourself doing this, and ask yourself, "If I'm wrong, what's the worst that can happen?" (And relax: there will be no "challah" and "holla" puns in this episode. Promise.)

  • 12: Beauty Threshold

    02/10/2014

    Highly sensitive people are often deeply moved by beauty in art and nature. This is a pretty cool aspect of being an HSP. In Episode 12 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about interesting stuff like Stedhal Syndrome and the beauty threshold.

  • 11: I Hate Being Highly Sensitive

    30/09/2014

    Why can't I ever be happy with the way things are? Why do little things bother me? Why do I complain so much? Why can't I be normal? These feelings make me angry at myself. Why can’t I just suck it up and deal with small annoyances? Why can’t I just relax and have fun? Why are things so hard for me and easy for everyone else? This is the episode I warned you about last week--the really negative one where I say the word "hate" like 100 times. In this Episode 11 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about the dark feelings I sometimes have about being highly sensitive and introverted. And of course, I talk about some positive stuff, too. If you are turned off by negativity, skip this one. But if you sometimes beat yourself up over the way you are, maybe this will give you some comfort to know you aren't alone.  

  • 10: Animals & HSPs

    23/09/2014

    I got a dog about 6 months ago--it's the first time I've ever cared for an animal in my life. It's been a fulfilling and fun experience. In Episode 10 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about how HSPs can have deep connections to animals due to our empathy and ability to pick up on non-verbal signals. Resources mentioned in the podcast: This post by Dr. Elaine Aron about what HSPs can get from animals. Related Posts on HighlySensitivePerson.net: Could I handle having a dog?

  • 09: Scary movies? NOPE

    17/09/2014

    I am highly sensitive to violence and horror. I learned early in life that I don't want anything to do with scary movies. Friends would sometimes tease me and try to convince me to watch, thinking it was not a big deal. But having disturbing scenes burned into my brain for life is a big deal! In Episode 9 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about how certain movies or TV shows make me anxious, scared, and uncomfortable--so much that I can't sleep at night, including the one movie I will never, ever watch again.

  • 08: Why am I so Jumpy?

    16/09/2014

    I am jumpy. I've been scared by my own shadow (no joke). Just last night, I was using my iPhone as a flashlight in the dark, when it illuminated a mirror, and my reflection scared me. Also not joking. In Episode 8 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about how some sounds affect me greatly--specifically, loud, sudden, and incessant noises. From buses to babies to birds (that alliteration was so lucky), I explain what sets me off and why I think it affects HSPs more than others.

  • 07: Explaining HSP to Your Partner

    09/09/2014

    Now that you've learned about high sensitivity, you may feel like a weight has been lifted off you. You feel more accepting of yourself and realize you aren't alone. You aren't weird! But how do you share this information with the most important person in your life? It can be hard to explain a concept like high sensitivity, especially to people who are skeptical (like my husband!) In this Episode 7 of the HSP Podcast, I have an imaginary conversation with a partner, wife, husband, boyfriend, or girlfriend to try to explain HSP in an easily-digestible way. If you like the podcast, please leave a rating and review in iTunes. It would very appreciated.

  • 06: The Importance of Caring Less About Your Job

    02/09/2014

    Have you ever thought about quitting your job because you were overwhelmed? Throwing in the towel because you had too much to do, and couldn't get it all done? Did you ever consider...caring less? That's quite a radical concept for us HSPs. It goes against everything we feel. We're generally loyal, hard workers who care deeply about what we do. But our conscientiousness can bleed over into perfectionism, and when we can't meet our impossible standards, we'd sometimes rather quit than underperform. In episode 6 of the HSP Podcast, I talk about how caring less can make your job more bearable and won't hurt you as much as you might think.

  • 05: Having Plans Weighs on Me

    26/08/2014

    If I have one thing to do in a day, it weighs on me all day long. Even if it’s something enjoyable. There will be a kernel of anxiety in my brain all day, until the event happens. In episode #5, I talk about this odd phenomenon. Having a dentist appointment at 3pm shouldn't mean I can't go to a yoga class at 10am! Why do I feel "so busy" when I'm not?

  • 04: Rant Against Office Cubicles

    19/08/2014

    This episode is a rant. I want you to understand that before you listen. If you don't like complaining, you might want to skip it. In episode #4, I talk about my personal experience working in a cubicle in an office for over 1o years and my battle against the following enemies: noise, a stinky office kitchen, bright lights, a painful chair, a lack of control Formidable foes all, but no match for the ultimate solution: quitting and working from home.

  • 01: What is a Highly Sensitive Person?

    07/08/2014

    In this introductory episode, I talk about what a Highly Sensitive Person ISN'T....and what they is. I mean, are. The goal of this podcast is to help other people realize if they are highly sensitive, that they aren't alone, and they aren't weird or wrong! I also cover the difference between introverts and HSPs, some benefits of being an HSP, and why high sensitivity isn't something you "have", like an illness.

  • 02: I Feel Suffocated by Stagnant, Warm Air

    07/08/2014

    Does stagnant, warm, still air make you feel suffocated or claustrophobic? Do you need a fan or cool, fresh air to avoid a panic attack? I'm amazed to report that this specific topic is the most popular post on my blog. Who knew this was such a common thing?! In this episode, I talk about my personal experiences with warm, still air, and offer some solutions to the issue. Podcast music attribution: Bust This Bust That (Professor Kliq) / CC BY-NC-SA 3.0

  • 03: Decision-Free Living

    07/08/2014

    We face dozens if not hundreds of decisions every single day--from big decisions to tiny ones, and they all take energy. As HSPs, we put so much care and energy into everything we do, that making all these decisions can wear us out, leaving us with insufficient energy for the important things in our life! In this episode, I give some examples of ways to reduce the number of choices you have to make in your daily life. While there is no way to have a truly decision free life, by preparing and planning ahead, we can eliminate some of them!   Did you enjoy the podcast?
