02 October 2021

A ‘Sensory Safe Space’ is a space, usually your bedroom or a private space in your home, where you can feel completely comfortable, with as many of your triggers minimised as possible. This is so important for everyone, as we can all feel overwhelmed at times. However, for those with disabilities that are impacted by external stimuli or sensory input, these are pretty much a necessity (if possible!) These disabilities are not just the first ones that come to your mind, likely autism and sensory processing disorder, but also for a large group of chronic illnesses.

If this sounds like you, here is my step-by-step guide and top tips for creating a space where these symptoms are less likely to be triggered.
