In today’s tip of the day, I will be sharing with you a quick and easy tip for someone who has photophobia and struggles with light sensitivity. Having photophobia can make it very difficult to travel when it is bright and sunny out. However, by finding ways to mitigate the effects of sunlight, travel can become a little easier. There are several ways to help do this but one very simple way is to wear a brimmed hat. It can be a baseball cap, sun hat, hiking hat, or any hat that has a brim to block the sunlight. I believe most people who have photophobia are already doing this. The majority of the adult clients I work with do this already but every once in a while I get to share this tip with someone and they find it very helpful.
One bonus tip for wearing a brimmed hat is that it gives some extra protection against head level obstacles. The brim provides a few extra inches of protection for the head and face which can mean the difference between a slight bump or a serious injury.
I hope this tip was helpful. I would love to hear from you if you have any other tips that you think would be good to share with the world. Please feel free to comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
