9 Reasons You Should Cherish The Sensitive People You Know

9 Reasons You Should Cherish The Sensitive People You Know

Sensitive people tend to get a bad wrap. Being sensitive is usually met with negative connotations such as being over-emotional and easy to upset which, in turn, is seen to create unnecessary drama.

However, being a sensitive person has its positive sides too and it’s these traits that we need to embrace and cherish in those people in our lives who we deem as a little sensitive.

1. They’re The Most Genuine And Honest People You’ll Ever Meet

Sensitive people are hyper aware of their surroundings and how they come across to people. They have the ability to say the right things without being harsh or having the intent to upset you. They are able to be honest and genuine at the right moments giving you the best advice possible.

2. They Will Always Support You

People who are on the sensitive side are more likely to stick by you when you’ve been wronged in any way. Sensitive people know how it feels when it comes to betrayal because they have probably suffered it a lot in their own lives. They are more likely to stand up for you because they identify with the betrayal rather than the full picture, but sometimes this is what you need. They also see the importance in being there for you as they are hyper aware of the fears, anxieties, and other range of emotions you may be feeling in times of need.

3. They Have The Ability To Care And Love Deeply

Sensitive people have an innate ability to love and care for you at a deeper level because they are well aware of their own bruised souls. They are sensitive to your feelings and want to do all they can for you because they want to prevent you from feeling hurt like they have in the past. This means sensitive people take this to a deeper level than others are able to because they are more likely to draw and learn from past hurts.

4. They Remain Compassionate Despite Being Broken-Hearted

Whatever hurt and anguish they are going through, sensitive people will never hold anything against you or feel bitter towards you especially in your hour of need. They may have inner turmoil going on themselves, but that won’t detract from their ability to be compassionate towards your situation and be there for you.

5. They Are Able To Sense Emotions In Others

Sensitive people are often in tune with the needs of others and have an innate ability to love and soothe just when you need it the most. People of a sensitive disposition are able to sense how you’re feeling through your words and actions much better than others.

In fact they will sense your emotion within as little as a few seconds of walking into a room with you. This ability is to your advantage as it will instantly allow someone to help unburden your thoughts and feelings and help understand you. Because of this, sensitive people make great psychologists, counsellors and teachers.

6. They Are Hardworking

If you have a sensitive person on your workforce then you’re in luck because they are hardworking to the point of perfectionism. They are guaranteed to put 110% into any task or project to get it done the best way possible. As deep-thinkers, they also make great team mates and are more likely to contribute their well thought-out ideas to a team meeting or key strategies for your sports team.

7. They Are Conscientious

It’s very unlikely that a sensitive person will harm or take any action that will cause distress to others. This is because it’s in their nature to carefully and thoughtfully think and analyse each situation before acting. Sensitive people are more aware of the consequences of their actions because of their ability to think ahead. This is something you will benefit from because you are guaranteed to get the perfect and well thought-out response to any situation.

8. They Have A Lot Of Imagination

Do you struggle with thinking up good ideas or using your imagination for a unique angle? Well you should definitely call on your sensitive friend because sensitive people have very vivid and colourful imaginations. They are more likely to be able to come up with original ideas and gladly help you out in making them a reality.

9. You Can Guarantee There Will Only Be Good People In Their Life

…and that includes you. Sensitive people will cut ties with those that continuously hurt them and who feel don’t add any value to their life. Just by being a part of their life, you are seen as precious and highly regarded which, in itself is a reason to keep hold of the sensitive people in your life.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
