How To Avoid HSP Depletion


HSP Tip: Tracking what or who drains your energy and what gives you energy is a great way to stay balanced as an HSP.

Overwhelm and depletion are common in HSPs. If you imagine you have 100 points of energy for the day, where does it go? Tracking energy points is a great way to stay balanced as an HSP and something we will be teaching in my new HSP Community.

If you don’t have enough energy points you may likely feel:

  • Irritable

  • Reactionary

  • Shorter fuse/anger

  • Lack patience

  • More emotionally reactive

  • Feel depleted

  • Resentment in relationships or at work grow

  • Can’t focus as well

  • Overwhelmed

  • Sensitivity challenges increases

  • Lose creativity access

  • Lose access to cognitive brain (tools/techniques)

  • Negativity increases

  • Health impacted-chronic conditions worsen/immune system function impacted

With a full 100 points you feel:

  • More brain space

  • Improved Emotional Regulation 

  • Less reactionary

  • Increased creativity

  • Energetic

  • Confident

  • Positive

  • Lower stress levels

  • Focused

  • Calm

  • Reduction to the challenges of Sensitivity 

  • Enhanced Positive Mood 

  • Increased Patience 

  • Decreased Irritability 

  • Greater access to memory 

  • Improved efficiency on tasks 

Tracking where your energy points are going is one of the first steps to start improving your life. If you would like more information, Julie is launching a new HSP community where we discuss what tends to drain points and what specifically helps increase your energy points as well as learning specific tools and techniques that help HSPs truly thrive. It’s a supportive space to connect with other kind and supportive HSPs too that is NOT on the distractions and chaos of social media.  If you would like special access into this new community, please take this quick 2-minute survey so we can learn what you need.
