Are you a Type 7?

Everyone loves a type 7! If this is you, you need to know that it’s okay to slow down and be present. Feel your heart and be emotional – don’t hide your feelings by moving onto the next project, event or shiny objects (going on a trip or planning a party). Remember that you need to feel pain and sadness to also feel true joy so don’t forget to check in with your emotions. You already have everything you need – just pay attention to it.
