Successful habits of highly sensitive people

Bouncing Back Empath

In a new episode of Bouncing Back premiering Monday, Lisa Bien learns about what it’s like being an ’empath’–a person with highly developed empathic abilities who is able to psychologically tune into the feelings felt by the people around them. Though this ability can be an asset, it is also a challenge to manage one’s own emotions day to day with the constant imposition of other’s. Lisa speaks to Regan Tilton, who grew up labeled a ‘sensitive child’ and had difficulty as an adult trying to juggle her deep feelings.

Lisa and Regan discuss how highly sensitive people need structure to cope with day-to-day pressures. She also found other coping mechanisms to be helpful, including Reiki, meditation, enough sleep, a healthy diet and more.

Tune in for these tips and insight on how to set healthy boundaries on this new episode of Bouncing Back with Lisa Bien, premiering Monday, November 19 at 12:30 and 8:30 p.m.
