Nature Activities

Some autistic individuals are nature empaths. If this is you, take up nature activities that can be done alone or with friends. Hiking, horseback riding, outdoor yoga, or a cup of tea in a garden will help alleviate anxiety and get you out of the house.

Hooded Cloak

Make clothes shopping lists before tackling the mall or department store. Also, try a hooded cloak for fall fashion. They are warm, loose, non-itchy, and turn into a thick scarf when needed!

Movie Theaters

Buy movie tickets in advance. You can do it online to limit your social interaction. Also, choose a theater that allows you to pick your seats. There will be less panic when you walk into a dark room full of tons of people and countless chairs.
