What do you hear?
Science has shown that focusing on one of your senses can help calm your body and mind. Let’s give it a try!
Choose a place to sit. It could be inside your house or outside. Sit down and notice how you feel. Then get comfortable and close your eyes. Listen careful for a few minutes, keeping your eyes closed and your body still. Notice how you feel again after you open your eyes.
Tell us about what you heard and how you felt. How many different sounds did you hear? The longer you listened, did you hear more sounds that you hadn’t noticed before? Did you feel differently before and after focusing on your sense of hearing? Why do you think that is?
