Mindful : April 2017
Touch, like taste, is direct. You can’t touch a piece of paper across the room; you can’t feel pebbles in your shoes when they’re not on your feet. When we touch something, recep- tors in our skin transmit information via the nervous system to the brain. Our fingers, hands, toes, and feet are particularly sensitive to touch, yet we feel things in every part of the body: anantonourcalforahandonour shoulder. Our bodies depend on touch to help orient us in space and to guide move- ment, whether walking, running, or swimming. Without a sense of touch, we would have a difficult time drink- ing a glass of water. How would you know when the glass touched your lips if you couldn’t feel it? Feel Your Way touch DIDYOU KNOW? Touch is the first sense we develop in utero. Mindfully explore your sense of touch with these three exercises: Hands Touch familiar everyday objects with your eyes closed. Take your time. What does a book feel like? What about a door? The door- knob? A spoon, a teacup, a paper napkin. Feet Mindfully feel the texture and temperature of rugs, tile, wooden floors, and other surfaces in your house. Outside: Feel the grass, the sidewalk, sand in a playground or at the beach. Body Focus on how water feels in the shower or a bathtub. Feel rain or snow falling on you. What does wind feel like? ● April 2017 mindful 47
