Should I rent a co-working space?
Should I study in-person, or online?
Small flat or big dormitory?
Openplan or own office?
Big university, or smaller private college?
Career in marketing or auditing?
These questions are regularly asked in my sensory consulting business, and unfortunately depend on further questions (to which luckily there are clear and directive answers):
Are you sensitive to your environment?
Do you avoid certain environments?
Are you fidgety, active, and struggle to settle down in your environment?
Are you mostly unaware of your environment?
Do you need to change up your environment for focus and energy?
Do you notice certain stimuli, but not others?
Knowing what we need from the environment helps us manage wellbeing and productivity; and helps decide our next ‘big step’ with scientific self-awareness and confidence.
