Did you know that being a highly sensitive person can be a superpower? It means you're more in tune with your surroundings, like people's moods, voices, and body language.

Do you quickly pick up on the needs and feelings of others? Do you become easily overwhelmed by sensory input such as a beep-beep-beep repetitive sound, bright lights, and or strong smells? Or do subtle changes in your environment affect you more than most?

Maybe you’ve been called ‘too sensitive’ more than once (or twice)... At least 20% (1/5th) of the population is considered highly sensitive. So, you are not alone.

This week, we welcome Linda Binns, Breakthrough Energy Expert, and HSP Expert, to share the latest research and her own survivor-to-thriver experiences as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Linda is an accomplished energy and HSP coach and author of seven self-help books, including the wonderful VALUE ME!: Advantages of Being a Highly Sensitive Professional. 
Along with her research, personal learnings, and coping strategies, Linda also shares

• Simple ‘grounding’ techniques to enhance health and reduce stress

• How to incorporate and appreciate your uniqueness as an HSP

• Strategies to welcome your sensitivity into your everyday life

• How to share with others what you need and be open to receive

And more including, it’s okay to be a highly sensitive person! 


More About Our Guest: Linda Binns describes herself as an introverted, intuitive, and highly sensitive person who became a small business owner, author, international speaker, radio and television guest, consultant, and coach.

Her childhood experiences left her unprepared to face life’s challenges. She felt inadequate and different from everybody else - like an outsider. Many times, she struggled with relationships (both personally and professionally) until she discovered the right tools. Little by little, her confidence increased. While her experiences in various careers in the corporate world were invaluable, she didn’t find fulfillment there. In 1997, she started her own energy coaching and consulting practice.

Now, her greatest joy is to share and discover with you just how you can achieve the highest levels of success and fulfillment in your personal and professional life. Her goal is to guide you to thrive in your personal and professional life. Learn more at www.LindaBinns.com

Note: While HSP itself is not an autoimmune condition, it is common for individuals with HSP to have autoimmune tendencies. Psychologist Elaine Aron coined the term highly sensitive person (HSP) to describe those with extra-sensitivity to various stimuli, and HSP varies from individual to individual. HSP is also known as people with sensory processing sensitivity. Sensory processing sensitivity is not considered an illness or diagnosis by Aron and other researchers. Instead, it is viewed as an evolved personality trait that can be advantageous in certain circumstances.

Those with a highly sensitive nature often exhibit an enhanced ability to sense potential dangers and subtle social cues that others might miss. A highly sensitive person (HSP) is more aware of their surroundings, such as smells, sounds, the emotions of others, and even the 'energy of the room.' This 'superpower' also makes them prone to overstimulation, fatigue, burnout, and exhaustion.
