Can you imagine life without senses? How your life would be without sights, smells, sounds, tastes and touch? As humans, our five senses help us navigate and understand the world around us, allowing us to react to things that make our lives worth living. So how can you sharpen them for more heightened experiences? Let your feelings flow with these three top tips:
1. Focus your breathing
Take a few minutes out of your day to focus your attention on your breath; the inhale and exhale. As you do so, try closing your eyes and listen to the world around you. Sense the life in your body, acknowledge the smells, and feel the air on your skin. Mindful breathing is particularly useful if you’re experiencing anxiety, as it is a powerful tool for regulating our responses to stress.
Did you know that dry mouth can adversely affect your sense of taste? Simply waiting for the sensation of thirst is not a good enough sign of a need to drink – by the time we feel thirsty our body is already dehydrated and potentially suffering some of the effects. So why not try and drink a glass of water every hour or so, in order to stay hydrated throughout the day.
3. Indulge in our TOUCH wellness pour
Our TOUCH wellness pour is a carefully crafted blend of zinc and natural botanicals - pomegranate, fig, and black pepper – to heighten the senses and help you connect with yourself and others. Plus, it’s enriched with Swiss-grade CBD to help maintain everyday wellness. Simply pour into water and drink before a date or night out, or a night in with yourself or a partner.
There are lots of ways to guide the senses. It’s about finding what works for you so you can live life with feeling.
