Blogger Jenna Grace is a neurodivergent writer and educator with sensory processing disorder (SPD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and social anxiety disorder (SAD) diagnoses. In this post, she offers 16 ways that she uses to unwind and get to sleep easier.
“I find that there are things I have to do throughout the day, at night before bed and while in bed to prepare my body and my mind for sleep,” says Grace.

I also find that using my weighted blanket during the day helps my regulation remain consistent. As does heavy lifting, bodywork or anything that regulates my tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive senses.”
