Health and Wellbeing – Our Senses

Our Senses –

Our senses pick up information from the environment around us and from within our bodies, and send it to our brain and body. This Mini-clip explores how our senses react to the environment around us and create emotional responses. It also explains that our bodies and brains can re-learn how to make sense of the information around us via our senses to allow us to live happier and calmer lives.

Health and Wellbeing – My Brain

My Brain –

This clip will help you to understand how the brain functions when it’s trying to work out how the body is feeling. It features Dr Dan Siegel’s “hand model” which is helpful in understanding what is happening inside the brain when responding to big feelings like anger or anxiety. You will learn to divide their brain into three parts – a thinking part, a feelings-memories part, and a safety-survival part – and learn strategies to calm their mind and body during intense times.
