Tips for managing overarousal at Christmas time if you are a HSP
If you are a Highly Sensitive Person, you will understand why the Festive season can lead to overarousal in our sensitive nervous systems. Large crowds in shopping centres and supermarkets, too much noise or having too many visitors can lead to overwhelm. As well as the sensory sensitivities that they experience, many HSPs feel different to their family and often feel like they don't fit in or belong. So Christmas can also be a very stressful time for them on an inner level.
