It’s no coincidence that many writers are highly sensitive people (HSP).

They are typically creative, empathic and highly intuitive. It is therefore no surprise that writing comes easy to HSP’s; it is the safest channel to freely express themselves without the fear of direct confrontation.

In general, HSPs are more aware of and affected by external stimuli than non-HSPs. They are often empaths, meaning they possess a keen ability to sense others’ feelings, needs, and insecurities. HSPs have rich inner worlds and, as a result, tend to internalise things more deeply : from social interactions to physical, to emotional and visual sensations.

The downside to this is that HSPs can easily become overwhelmed. Criticism can be hard to swallow, as not everyone communicates with the same thoughtfulness as HSPs.

Because high sensitivity is widely misunderstood, the behavior of HSPs can frustrate others. Being highly sensitive doesn’t make a person weak, but…

4 Awesome Tips To Deal With Summer Heat!

1. Take breaks under the shade to cool off

If you plan on spending most of your time outside, try to get out of the sun throughout the day. Go to the nearest store or shopping center to cool off when it’s scorching hot outside!

2. Wear loose, light colored clothing

Wearing tight fitted dark colored clothing can absorb heat and restrict proper air flow.  Try your best to wear cotton material which is great for absorbing moisture easily. Don’t forget about wearing accessories like hats and sunglasses for added protection from the sun!

3. Lower floors of buildings

Heat rises, so higher floors of buildings or homes are normally warmer than lower floors. If possible, sleep on the ground floor or basement for a cooler environment. Covering windows with drapes and shades can help reduce indoor heat as well.

4. Limit intake of soda and alcohol

Soda and alcoholic beverages can have a dehydrating effect. If it’s unavoidable, alternate with drinking sips of water here and there to help reduce dehydration.

6 Signs You’re Not Drinking Enough Water!

You skin is dry

Skin is the largest organ of the body. Without proper hydration, skin becomes dry and dull. By drinking more water, it’ll help flush out toxins and replenish your skins tissues hydrated and moisturized.

You’re thirsty

An obvious sign of dehydration is feeling thirsty. When we are dehydrated, our body borrows water and allocates it to the body parts that are in need of hydration. As a result, this causes us to become thirsty.

You have dark urine

If your urine is a darker yellow, you are likely to be dehydrated. Your kidneys have to work harder to keep urine concentrated to retain as much water as possible.

Bad breath

The saliva you’re body produces to clean and lubricate your mouth kills bacteria. If you’re not drinking enough water, you aren’t producing enough saliva to get rid of bacteria. This as a result causes bad breath.

Frequent headaches

When dehydrated, the tissue in our brain loses water, which results in temporary brain shrinkage. As this happens, our brain contracts from our skull, setting off the pain receptors, resulting in a headache. Dehydration also decreases blood volume which reduces blood flow and oxygen to the brain, leading to headaches.

Mood and alertness impaired

One reason dehydration impairs your ability to focus or respond normally is that certain processes in your body are being compromised. Water transports nutrients to the brain as well as flushes out harmful toxins for increased efficiency. Without enough water, this can lead to a lack of focus, moodiness, lethargy, and brain fog.
