A podcast interview with Zoe Kennell, a teacher and somatic educator, about her experience of using somatics to support her through a particularly gruelling three years with a new head teacher. Includes tips for staying calm under pressure.
Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)
It’s not always easy to find inspiration when you’re off balance. Often you go into survival mode, managing to keep going through a day at a time with not much sense of anything outside the immediate pain. Yet regular inspiration – someone’s achievement, glorious light on a landscape, the fledging of birds in Spring, a life of giving – is what keeps us mindful that life is possible beyond your current difficulties.
If you’re able to take time out over the festive season, you might want to think about how you can recover your balance and set off into next year in a more positive and calmer frame of mind.
The trait of high sensory sensitivity is a rich vein. In my last post I mused on whether there’s a higher than expected proportion of Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) among those who struggle to stay balanced in the midst of bullying, a toxic workplace, or high stress. Perhaps you’ll share your experiences?
