Are You Highly Sensitive?

Does noise bother you? Are you really empathetic and compassionate? Do you have trouble making decisions? If you’re saying, “Yes,” you might be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). So what? Guest Clare Kumar says being a HSP has big benefits and potential drawbacks, so being aware of your sensitivities and those of others is advantageous, especially for work. After the conversation, we talk triggers and avoiding them for greater chill.

About Host Jordan Friedman

Jordan is known as The Stress Coach, a career path that likely started when one of the world’s largest brain tumors was discovered in his head at age 10. The resulting, nonstop stress continued through college until he reluctantly enrolled in a stress management class that led to much less stress, a degree in public health, a job as Columbia University’s health education director and now a career as a global stress management speaker, trainer and author. For 25 years, Jordan’s been privileged to help and learn from 9/11 survivors, teachers, CEOs, police officers, incarcerated adults, students and lots of other stressed people who want to be more successful, get better grades, sleep easier and be healthier.

In 2004, Jordan founded The Stress Coach to provide innovative workshops, multimedia webinars, chill apps, online courses and more stress-relief opportunities. The Chill Factory podcast is Jordan’s latest effort to bring stress relief and better health to the world.
