Interoception is contemporarily defined as the sense of the internal state of the body.
Interoception is essential for understanding your feelings. Improving your interoception is important in treating trauma, but it will help you thrive in your life as well.
So what can you do to improve your interoception:
- Sensing your heartbeat
- Probably any other physical activities where you have to observe your body closely
