Use Your Senses to Help with Pain: Thermoception

October 12th, 2015 · No Comments

How can our senses increase the positive in our lives? Today is: Thermoception

Thermoception is our sense of temperature, our ability to detect hot or cold. Some of my favorite warm things – warm sand of the beach between my toes, the sun on my face, snuggling under warm blankets, sitting in front of a wood fire. Favorite cold things – ice cream, snow, cold water after a run.

Your assignment: Each day, notice 1 thing related to hot or cold that makes you smile!

(As you know, hot/cold can also help directly with pain. Heat – think heat packs, snuggling under blankets, or warm showers. Cold – think cold packs or menthol cream.)
