02: Design Your Workspace with Sarah Peck

Episode description

It’s time to do a little deep thinking about workplace environment. For many individuals, a bustling, crowded, workplace is invigorating. For others, it is crippling. Today, I am talking with a dear friend of mine, Sarah Peck. Sarah realized that her workplace environment wasn’t just uncomfortable, it was unsustainable. She described leaving work feeling like a soggy piece of bread! If that sounds like you, Sarah’s story has so much to offer. 

Sarah’s lightbulb moment came when she realized she was a Highly Sensitive Person. Because she had a high sensitivity to noise and fluorescent lights, Sarah knew that she needed to change her workplace environment. Today, you will find out how she made that happen, and what she is doing now to encourage organizations to design a better workspace. This brings up a whole world of conversation about company culture, the hiring process, and trusting your inner voice. You can design your life. It just takes time. 

More in this episode: 

  • What it means to be a Highly Sensitive Person. 
  • What it does not mean to be HSP. 
  • The workplace was what gave Sarah her lightbulb moment about being HSP.
