Routine and Travel

Routine and structure are important for the autistic person, so how can we handle the massive changes that come with travel, especially changes in sleep as we hop from one time zone to another? Whenever I’m traveling, I hold my night routine constant and I continue to use my sound machine, whether I’m staying at a hotel or with friends and family. Sleeping with the window open is also helpful, as it helps reset my internal clock to match the clock of wherever I’m staying.
