Examples of sensory in a Sentence

  1. Tiffany Owens:

    Much like slow food, I've long been a proponent of slow travel, spending six months to a few years in each new destination with different jobs, instead of racing around the globe to fill passports and Instagram feeds in a sensory overload, slower travel provides an opportunity to more fully immerse oneself in and explore each new place.

  2. Kerry Coyne:

    We have watched the coffee category expand and adapt as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, attracted by the smoother flavor and artisanal characteristics and third - and fourth-wave coffee, we knew our culinary team could deliver that same premium, hand-crafted sensory experience with the bellowed category hero of espresso in our best-in-class, fresh-baked bagel. The caffeine in the bagel is sourced from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. Einstein’s exact recipe is proprietary but in addition to packing a caffeinated punch, the new bagel also has 13 grams of protein, derived from cocoa. We ’d all love a little extra energy in the morning, but do the enhancned bagels actually taste any good ? The product left tasters divided in a pretty even split. The product itself resembles a dark brown pumpernickel bagel and, upon the first few nibbles, tastes like a chewy plain bagel with a slightly sweet taste. After a few more bites, however, the bitterness from the espresso really kicks in.

  3. Ryan Hammond:

    When we think about families with children with autism coming to a game, theres barriers to re-entry, theres sensory overload when we score a touchdown and theres pyrotechnics, we felt the sensory room was what we needed to be fully accessible and the idea behind it was not to change the experience but deliver a solution if they needed to take a break. If the sensory bag wasnt enough, you dont have to leave the stadium. You can take a break, de-escalate, calm down and rejoin the experience when you felt ready.

  4. Michael Bjorn:

    Half of all the smartphone users we talked to believe that internal sensors will give updates on their health and well-being in only three years, it’s a bit like wearables, but internal sensors in our bodies will be the new wearables. It doesn’t even stop there, he added. When you start asking questions about this, you realize eight out of 10 smartphone owners would like to augment things like sensory perception and cognitive ability with technology. So you have interest in things like vision, memory and hearing and, to me, that is quite surprising.

  5. Lisa Thebner:

    Identifying those children who are moderate to severely selective eaters as possibly having mood or sensory issues as well can aid pediatricians in identifying those at-risk children, in doing so, then we can be better able to make the appropriate referrals to any or all of the following: nutritionists, feeding therapists who can help with sensory issues to food, and specialists in pediatric behavior and development, who can help aid the child and the family working with the child.
