Maybe earplugs and a nice silk eye mask to tune things out a little when I can. Sometimes you prefer silence over music and the earplugs are key. Light and noise doesn’t bother my hubby at all, so he didn’t want these too, but I’ve always been sooo sensitive to lights and sounds when trying to relax.
