Sensory tips for cold weather!

1. Legwarmers are great. I think of them as ankle scarves. They protect the space between your pants and your shoes, if you don’t want to wear boots or thick socks.

2. Heated bean bags are not just for sore muscles. They also feel nice on my lap in a car that’s still warming up.

3. Natural fabrics (like cotton) feel cozier than synthetic ones (like polyester). Thank you to my followers for teaching me this, on a post about clothing comfort! I’ve slowly been updating my wardrobe ever since.

What would you add?

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
