In the Feel Good issue of AQUILA magazine we explored emotions and what feelings actually are ; but where exactly do you feel them ?
Polly ’ s Mission
The human body is complex ! Have you noticed how your brain receives information and there ’ s a physical response too ? For example , have you ever felt a shiver down your spine when you ’ re scared or creeped out ? Or have you felt sick to your stomach when you ’ ve had a test at school looming ? How about when you ’ ve felt so joyful your heart feels like it could literally burst ? These are all our body ’ s way of naturally responding to life – the good , and the bad . But , we ’ re intrigued , where do YOU feel these emotions ? Come and make an emotion body map with us and find out .
STEP 1 : Print out the template and add facial features so it ’ s recognisable as you !
STEP 2 : Take a look at each emotion listed around the body . There ’ s :
Anger Happiness Sadness Love Fear Disgust Shame Excitement
Do you associate these emotions with any particular colours ? Yellow is often thought of as a positive colour ; red is often associated with anger ! Consider each emotion carefully and give it a colour , like a code .
