Hello everyone,

These last couple of days I have been wearing a warm hat/cap (outside and inside) and for some reason it made me feel a LITTLE more attached to my body.

It's like wearing sunglasses when you go outside. It forms some sort of barrier which leads to feeling more INSIDE my body..

Usually I feel like my soul could fly outside the top of my head at any given moment, but when I'm wearing a warm hat its not that bad..

Hopefully I'm able to help someone with this tip (havn't seen it before so) or at least give it a try (its cold anyway).

Stay warm!

yep, I've noticed the same. I'm almost always wearing a cap whenever I have to go outside anywhere, even during the summer. It's only a little better, but whatever little bit helps. I also find that I feel a little better when I put my entire head under the covers, or when I'm lying down on the couch, I turn my head to face the back of the couch. I think it might help by offsetting the distance between me and whatever is in the background, making the flatness of the external world a little less noticeable. I think that is also why going outside feels worse, DR-wise (because the things in the distance are farther away from me.
