Everyone has a favorite holiday destination but they usually have tales of bad holidays as well.
Marieta explores holiday options for sensory roots! Listen to her video to see how holidaying from a low threshold, sensory-wired person looks and pick up some tips and tricks to ease the holiday stress and help family relationships survive. She explains why it’s so important for roots to have their own quiet space that they can go to and just relax and calm down and have a little bit of quiet time regardless of where your destination is. How to deal with having a holiday with your family that’s in a busy space, or in a busy town and you’re not up to all the noise and decision making and franticness, you know how some people in families jam their holidays full of activities. She explains the importance for those with low sensory thresholds to forward plan to have enough free time so that they can take that quiet space and have an in between break, away from people, away from too many sensory stimuli just to give their nervous systems a little bit of a break.
