You can feel emotions as physical sensations in your body. From getting butterflies in your stomach when you are nervous or excited, experiencing tingling in your fingers when you are anxious, to feeling your heart hurt when you are sad or lonely, or like your chest is exploding when you are overwhelming. These are the different ways your body processes the different emotions you can be feeling.
When you experience big emotions, it is common to feel out of control. And recognising your emotions in your body can be the first step to begin regain control. In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week, Verity explores this connection between the body and your emotions.
This is a fun and simple activity to do with your family or friends.
