Sensory Overload

I took this picture as I was finishing my soak for sensory overload. I’d stared at the ceiling for 20 minutes straight in an effort to relax and calm my senses. It isn’t really sensory deprivation per say but it can have the same effects. When I finished I realized what an oddly beautiful picture that would be. Steps to calm overwhelm senses.

Step 1- make bathroom pitch dark

step 2- make the water almost unbearably hot

step 3- lay in the dark for 20 minutes focusing on different stationary objects

Step 4-work on your breathing.

Step 5- Get out of the bathtub and go relax in a cool area.

I hope this helps some of you who have sensory overload issues like I do.

*I learned this from one of my therapist and it works sometimes* I just thought I would share this with you along with a picture of my ceiling. #mentalhealth #bipolar #bipolaroutcasts #depressed #depression #manic #mentalhealthawareness #schizophrenia #moodswings #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblogging #anxiety #semicolon #semicolonproject #smallvictories #hypomanic #rapidcycle #gettingoutbed #gettingoutbedvictory #myillnesswontwin #losethebattlewinthewar #fuckbipolar #blogger #blogging #suicide #suicideawareness #psychosis #foreverafighter #breathe #authorinprogress
