summer has only just started (uk) and its already 35 degrees C (about 95 degrees F). it's only going to get hotter and I really struggle in the heat, bright sun etc and it makes melt/shut downs more likely. I do my best to avoid other stressor, but does anyone have any good ways to manage my sensory experience so I can enjoy summer?

      I've found that cold packs on the neck, wrist or back can really help, but I know that some people can't tolerate that for long periods of time!

      One thing that has changed my world in summer is having a UV parasol! It's portable shade and stops me from being overstimulated by the intense heat of the sun on my skin. Also means I don't have to put on as much suncream because I'm not in the sun. Neck fans or handheld fans can help a lot as well... I hear you though, I struggle immensely in the heat and humidity and it's likely going to continue now until September which is a bit worrying

A: Some ways to manage your sensory experience during summer include using a rechargeable neck fan, wearing moisture-wicking shirts, and using microfiber towels soaked in cold water around your neck. Staying hydrated, keeping to the shade, and having access to air conditioning can also help you tolerate the heat better.
