In an article of hers, creativity coach Jenna Avery affirms, “As a sensitive soul, it’s easy to get overstimulated. With stimulation all around, it’s not surprising.
“Our urgency-addicted culture and mainstream work ethic is overstimulating.
“Sound bites, billboards, spam, and constant advertisements surround us.
“Other people’s energy and emotions affect us. Too much light, noise, color, texture, or odor will quickly send us into overdrive.”
She also lists as other sources, “sugary foods, alcohol, or caffeine.. our own negative internal dialogues” and notes that even “positive excitement can be overstimulating.”
