Dr. Michael R. Smith was once asked during an interview, “There’s many empath out there that sometime involved in addictive harmful habits because of their sensitivity. That they use these habits to cope. Is there any alternative that you recommend for them?”

Michael answered, “Yeah, Yoga!”

Empaths and Highly Sensitive People (hsp) have a sensitive system compared to the majority of the population. If we don’t take responsibility for ourselves we may find ourselves involved in risky behaviors to cope with the sensitivity.

It’s such a sad sight when Empaths don’t catch on to their sensitivity and realize there’s an alternative solution.

It’s important to find alternatives that calm you, bring back your awareness…your presence. I love how Eckhart Tolle said in his book The Power of Now, “If you aren’t present in your house (your body) all kinds of shady characters will show up.”

It’s like a bum sneaks in and crashes in your house. Hooligans vandalizing your home. Graffiti devaluing your property.

It’s basically what’s happening. If you drink, smoke, gamble, binge eat, do drugs, take heavy medications or whatever your unhealthy addictive behavior is… it’s dimming your awareness. And as Empaths & HSP, we highly depend on our awareness to stay present and make sound decision for our highest good and well being… to LIVE.

Without it, we can loose grip with coping with the normal day to day situations. And creating the safe personal zone.
