Most people hate getting sick. It feels lousy. BUT - as an HSP, there are benefits of illness. Often, being highly sensitive means that our system is more likely to fall prey to a cold or flu when we are living a life that is too stimulating. Why might that be good? Because we can use illness as information. We can correct our behaviors faster and move back to a healthy state more efficiently. AND - in allowing illness to come and having gratitude for the signals its sending, we can use illness as an opportunity to slow down.
