Evening walks sharpen our senses. We perceive nature more clearly at night. The same goes for our bodies.
By closing our eyes and concentrating on our bodies, we can more accurately assess how we feel on the inside. Start to understand the links between our body and our mind.
This so-called ‘interoception’ – known as the 6th sense – allows us to process the communication occurring between our brain and organs such as the intestines, bladder or kidneys.
This kind of communication, which makes us happy, sad or nervous, usually takes place subconsciously.
But if we actively monitor certain sensations, it can help us regulate certain feelings and overcome a range of health problems on our own.
Gut reaction: makes sense.
