Ideas for fixing sensory issues

This thread is the post your different ideas on how to fix/lessen sensory issues you experience.

Here are some things I've done to help alleviate some of my sensory issues:
- I wear 32db earplugs when going to sleep and just throughout the day. Especially when going into stores or in public this is much needed. I had no idea how much regular noise overstimulates me and causes me anxiety.

- I wear a sleeping mask to bed most nights because I am sensitive to the sunlight and I don't sleep as well without my eyes covered.

- Brushing my teeth was something and still is a thing I struggle with because of the sensory issues it causes me. But I have found a soft bristled toothbrush that is less harsh on my teeth and gums, and I use kids bubblegum toothpaste because it isn't as strong and doesn't hurt as much as adults peppermint toothpaste.

- The lights and fan in the bathroom overload me, so I put a night light in and use that instead, and that really helps with my bathroom sensory overload. It really reduces my anxiety and makes the bathroom experience more pleasant. I don't feel so overloaded anymore and I had no idea how much it was stressing me until I switched and only use a night light now.

- I can't stand it when towels and my clothes in general are dried just without anything to make them softer, it scratches my skin and irritates me. So I throw in unscented fabric softener sheets in the dryer with the clothes, towels, blankets etc.

What are some things that you do to help lessen sensory issues and overload?
