Welcome to the Sensitive Self-Care blog! Thanks for joining me :)
These last few months have been such an exciting and busy time for me. I recently celebrated the completion of my Ph.D. in Cultural Studies - I am officially Dr. Joanna Perkins, and loving it! A few weeks ago I got to hang out in Calgary in the Rocky mountains with some family. And in August I spent three intensive weeks upgrading my ThetaHealing certifications.
As you can see, I love to work hard, and play hard ;)
On top of it all, I've been super excited about this blog, and all the programs and services I've got planned for Sensitive Self-Care. I am so inspired, and can't wait to share everything with you!

On this blog I will be focusing on everyday challenges through the eyes of a sensitive such as skin sensitivities; digestive health; feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, and over-stimulation; and, how to love and accept yourself as a highly sensitive and empathic person. Here are a few of the main themes I will be exploring.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE food! Especially eating food :) As a senstive, I have found my body to be a fickle beast at times. My relationship with food has been a huge part of my self-growth and healing as a sensitive. I plan to talk about food not just from a physical health perspective, but also from an emotional and spiritual point of view. Learning about health and food has taught me a lot about being more grounded, abundant, and joyful.
Feelings of anxiety and overwhelm have been a huge part of my life. It's funny though because many people who know me often comment on what a calm and easy-going person I am! And, for the most part, I am... but this has taken a lot of intensive self-care and work over the years. It's very common for sensitives to feel over-stimulated. I look forward to sharing different strategies and exercises that have helped me calm the eff down.
Acne, redness, sensitive skin, oily skin, dry (AND?) greasy hair! WTF?! As a sensitive, I find that my body, especially from my neck up like to freak out on me from time to time. I will be sharing beauty and health regimens I've tried out that have been helpful to me. I will also focus on the more spiritual aspects of inner beauty and share my struggles (and successes!) with feeling beautiful, confident, and secure in myself as a woman.
Over the years, I've spent a lot of time developing self-care strategies to help me cope with my sensitivities. I discovered many solutions and insights to problems in my life before ever being aware of my empathic qualities. I will be sharing these insights here and hope you will find them useful!
My next blog will be Part I of my Ultimate Guide to Calming the Eff Down! Stay tuned...
