A must read for anyone experiencing sensory overload. So many great ideas here. #REDinstead.
To tolerate places you don’t want to be at:
Take your glasses off
If you wear contacts or glasses, wear glasses that day. If you are going somewhere that are dreading or think it will be kind of invasive like the dentist, eye doctor, or hair dresser, take your glasses off when you are able. Blurred vision means less visual cues to take in and fully process. It also means less cutting eye contact and less details of others’ facial expressions to hold on to and worry about (cuz you can’t really see it as clear!). When already stressed or on alert mode, taking away even just one stressor can be very beneficial.
