Healthy Eating for a Highly Sensitive Person – 40-Day Journal – Day 8

In the discussion of healthy living, the matter of healthy eating is bound to come up at some point. “You are what you eat” and all of that.

40-Day Journal – Day 7 – The Philosophy of Pain

By HSP Mystic Chronic pain can make it nigh impossible to focus on anything else. I’ve dealt with chronic pain off and on for years. Over the last several weeks, it has been particularly bothersome. Progressively so, to where for the last few days I have found it a challenge to focus my attention onContinue reading “40-Day Journal – Day 7 – The Philosophy of Pain”

40-Day Journal – Day 5 – Time in Nature

  By HSP Mama Continuing my thoughts from my last post on day two, when it comes to space, it feels different outside.

40-Day Journal – Day 6 – Rediscovering Madeleine L’Engle

By HSP Bookworm I can’t remember when I wasn’t an introverted bookworm. Can’t remember a time I didn’t love books. Once I discovered libraries, it was always a joy to find a new author, a new set of books to read and love. Discovering Madeleine L’Engle’s Fiction  I didn’t discover Madeleine L’Engle at a libraryContinue reading “40-Day Journal – Day 6 – Rediscovering Madeleine L’Engle”

Looking Up – Attentiveness Amidst COVID-19

By HSP Mystic What will people think when they look back on this time? COVID-19, the coronavirus, pandemic, fear, anxiety. What do we think, we who are in the midst of it now? COVID-19, the coronavirus, pandemic, thinking, anxiety. I wonder if we do think about it as we should, as we might. If weContinue reading “Looking Up – Attentiveness Amidst COVID-19”
