As a highly sensitive person you may notice that when good things happen, especially a lot of good things and you feel amazingly up and happy, the next day you might feel down, even depressed.
There is an explanation for this. When good things happen your endorphins (feel-good neurotransmitters) spike sky high and then…guess what? Afterwards, they plummet, sending you crashing emotionally, feeling down. Just like coming down from any high.
The remedy is a simple one, as those good things happen–and afterwards (and truthfully, as a lifestyle habit) be sure that you engage in activities that gently raise endorphin levels without spiking them, like: taking a walk, favorite music, warm bath, meditation, massage, playing with your doggie/kitty, painting or your favorite creative hobby, gentle exercise, yoga, gardening, talking and laughing with a good friend, a favorite fragrance, etc.
Making these a part of your daily lifestyle will soften the predictable fall in endorphin levels after amazing experiences and keep you feeling a lot more balanced. It’s a good idea to make your own list of favorite, effective ‘endorphin activities’ and care for yourself this way with awareness so you can truly THRIVE!
