Sensory Deprivation

Have you ever felt deprived of sleep or being able to focus on daily tasks?

Well, if you answered yes then chances are you could be experiencing sensory deprivation.

Some may ask, What is sensory deprivation? Sensory Deprivation is the deliberate reduction or removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses.

Why may I be sleep deprived? Sleep deprivation can be due to many reasons such as:

*STRESS *CHANGED SCHEDULE *HAVING A NEW ADDITION TO THE FAMILY

In severe cases, it can be due to:

*CHRONIC PAIN SYNDROME *DEPRESSION *ALZHEIMERS DISEASE

In order to improve on decreasing sensory deprivation, it is vital to exercise your mind by reading, getting a good night sleep, going for a walk and interacting with others on a daily.

If you’re not able to create a schedule to decrease the chances of sensory deprivation, Therapy can allow you to figure out what can suit your lifestyle and determine different coping mechanisms until you are able to get back on track.
