A store in Manchester, England is starting a quiet hour initiative, in which they create a quiet shopping environment one hour a week for anyone who may need it. With my sensory issues, I’d definitely appreciate if a store did this. Although my first question would be: could you please dim the fluorescent lights?

“People make spreadsheets to assess their financial situation, but it’s not often that people do the same to take a hard look at the inner-workings of their personal or social lives.” Since I need time and space to restore my energy,  I’ve been budgeting my emotional energy for years (no spreadsheets for me – mainly mental check-ins to see if I have energy and desire to do certain activities, depending on the activity and how much I’ve done that week). It’s nice to see a post about the importance of it.
