What is Body Sense?
Body sense is the ability to pay attention to our sensations, emotions, body shape, and movements, in the present moment, without the mediating influence of judgmental thoughts. In technological societies where thinking is favored, people lose touch with their bodies, compromising physical and mental health. As a scientist practitioner of body sense awareness, I write each post with links to relevant research as well as suggesting ways to enhance your body sense for optimal well-being.
