Sensory Stories # 70: Understanding your senses at work.
Posted: 17 January, 2023
By: Annemarie Lombard
Work is a reality for most and even if you don’t work, you still operate in an environment. In any work environment we see, we hear, we smell, we taste, we touch, we move, and our brains are constantly being stimulated within our space. Sensory avoiders have low neurological thresholds and their brains are wired to such an extent that they experience distractions more intensely and frequently. Sensory seekers are people with high thresholds and experience the same environment differently – they actually thrive on having their senses stimulated and being in a busy environment.
Each one of us are wired differently and therefore respond differently to the stimulation in our environments. In this video, Annemarie uses the two extremes of the sensory threshold continuum to explore the effect that your workspace has on your focus, attention, energy and ultimately your work capacity. This is especially relevant as we are drawn into the hybrid working space – working from home, from the office or both. Watch her vlog to find out more.
