I am an empath. I absorb the feelings of others like a sponge. It is not something I seek to do, it just happens. Only 12% of the world's population are empaths (from what I have read). Yesterday was a rough one. There was a great deal of conflict at my job, I felt very tense and eventually, overwhelmed, anxious, and agitated. This resulted in a smashing headache and a sensitivity I felt for the rest of the day. I don't have these days often. It is very uncomfortable. I ate pizza last night which would be fine if I had added a salad and had two slices instead of no salad and four. I will live of course, it is just all around unpleasant. Exercise helps me with everything and I did not exercise yesterday. Today, my normal exercise window is compromised due to work. That happens from time to time but not a lot. I'll revisit exercise this evening.
