Most of us are all very familiar with TED Talks. For those who aren't, a TED Talk is essentially a professional in their field discussing their subject for around 15-20 minutes, in front of an audience. Some are delivered as a video or a slideshow, and sometimes even as a poem. They occur all over the world and most of them have been uploaded to YouTube for our viewing (and listening) pleasure. There are MANY talks out there about everything and anything, however, in regards to mental health there is one that has always stood out for me: 'The gentle power of highly sensitive people' by Elena Herdieckerhoff.
For me, this talk discusses sensitivity and anxiety in a way that is thorough, but most of all just makes sense. For the 'sensitive' among us, I hope you find this video as helpful as I did. If you have read the popular book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain, this talk goes hand-in-hand with what Cain discovers as a mental health professional.
If you have 15 minutes and 53 seconds to spare, I would highly recommend listening to what Elena has to say.
