Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins


Insight To Help You Successfully Begin And Complete A New Exercise Program For The New Year

With January here, now is the time to put into practice any resolutions you have made and continuously work on them so you can accomplish them. If getting into shape or losing weight is one of your resolutions, here are some tips to help you make sure to achieve your fitness goal this year.

Get a Doctor's Physical Evaluation

Before you begin any new workout program, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor first. Make an appointment with your doctor to get a physical to make sure your body is up for the new challenge of exercise and the physical activity your new program will require of it. Especially if you have not been physically active for some time, this doctor's physical evaluation of you will make sure your body can handle what your workout plans are.

Your doctor will look for any underlying issues you may not be aware of, such as heart conditions, diabetes, breathing problems (especially if you smoke), and any injuries you are working on healing. Your doctor can recommend exercises and specific workouts for you to implement to work around any underlying conditions. This will also ensure you don't begin with too strenuous a workout that could cause you injury.

Recruit a Workout Partner

The next step to making sure your new exercise program is successful is to find someone who will workout with you each day. Having someone to work out with you helps you to stay accountable to participate in regular workouts and keeps each other motivated to continue. A new workout program can be difficult to continue because it can be easy to give up or fall back into old habits.

For example, getting up early in the morning to complete your workout is easier when you know someone is waiting for you to do your workouts with. Being in a workout pair helps to hold you each accountable to each other, so if you want to skip a workout, your partner can remind you of your original commitment.

Write It Down

It is also important to write down your workout goals on paper. Writing down your goals can help encourage you to stay on track, especially if you place your written goals in a spot where you see them often. And a recent study has found that those who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them. Write down your exercise goals, being specific about what you plan to do and what you want to accomplish.

Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
