Hi everyone! Thank you so much for joining our platform. 

This is a place for everyone to discuss their experiences as neurodiverse professionals, share tips, and discuss the resources in our library. Everyone should have a voice to discuss their lives as neurodiverse people, and this forum is a part of that.

We of course ask that you keep things respectful, and if you have any questions or concerns please direct them towards me or the other moderators. 

To kick things off, does anyone have a tip to help deal with sensory overload at work? Headphones are a live-saver for me.

Hi Isabelle, glad to be here. In response to your prompt, I invested in a pair of Nuraphone noise-cancelling headphones, which are fantastic for blocking out sound but have a passthrough mode if someone needs to talk to me. I also carry around a set of in-ear monitors for when I am on the move, as the noise-cancelling headphones are a bit big. That tends to block out most distractions, but if I need some noise going through them I use the Relaxia and Bloom apps, as well as the generative.fm website. Another useful tool I recently discovered is to use a balance cushion under my seat while I work. The instability helps me maintain good posture and concentration on tasks while also strengthening my core muscles.
