      There’s a mental exercise like grounding, but it’s called veiling. It’s imagining a veil between you and other people, a separation, a barrier between their energy and yours. I wouldn’t recommend it without practice, as it does take focus and practice to get it to work the way we want. Conceptually it is separating self from the others. But not because you’re better or anything- just because you’re sensitive and need space. I find this practice really soothing for before I go to the grocery store or god forbid, the airport! 😫😅

      Yes, I avoid spending time with people for the most part. It's so draining.

      Yes, it’s important to take time to recharge and care for yourself afterwards

      Music in at least on ear, listen to one thing at a time, withdraw if needed, engage when you feel up to it

      Yes I get completely overwhelmed and physically drained from spending time with other people. I end up withdrawing from the situation and taking a nap.
