A few of my tips for us HSP's?
Lunch in your car so you have time away from people midday
Eat a plant-based high-protein diet.
Get gentle cardio in a few days a week
Magnesium (transdermal/lotion you can discreetly use throughout the day) and calcium both help with sleep and calming.
Be open about HSP ONLY with people that you have established trust with, and its recommended to not use the term HSP. Tell them that you struggle in social situations (eg crowds/large groups) for example. When the company Christmas party came up at my job, I actually did this with my supervisor and they offered to get a table away from everyone to accommodate me and sit with me so I could enjoy the evening. If you tell others in the right way, many people will want to support you!
In general, I would also recommend watching self-care videos on YouTube and never allow people to make you feel guilty for taking the "down time" that you need.
I will say that one piece of advice in the book that is excellent is that your own peace of mind and serenity is worth more than the money that you may earn at a higher pressure, high earning job.
