Sensory Overload happens when one or more of the body’s senses experiences over-stimulation from the environment. Examples of this includes noise, claustrophobic spaces and much more. When you are dealing with sensory overload it starts to feel like you are having a panic or anxiety attack. Your breath will come in short gasps and all you want to do is get out of the place where you are. I may be wrong but that’s how it felt to me.

The best ways to deal with sensory overload is to get away from the situation. Take a walk until you’ve calmed down or just pace. Simple exercises distract your mind from panicking and soon you will feel more calm and relaxed.

“It’s like being a newborn, this sudden sensory overload of noise, color, smells and gravity after months of quietly floating, encased in relative calm and isolation. No wonder babies cry in protest when they’re born.” -Chris Hadfield
