What is The Senses Community?

The idea for The Senses Community has come from the challenges we are all facing together, and have been since March 2020 in the United Kingdom. 

However, the need for more accessible, and simplified ways to unite together as a community; to share, to experience, and to develop easier has been a need much longer overdue.

The sense of a community can feel lost within anxiety, stress, and isolation. Support has become increasingly harder to access and so this is where The Senses Community comes in.

This Community is designed as a collective sharing of ideas, strategies, methods and inspiration for self-help and overall mental well-being.

This page will update regularly, with new self-help workshops, videos from the team, links, projects, and a group chat forum to get involved in.

What if the change isn't what we actually find scary? Lets consider the anticipation of change being the difficult part;

Step 1: Take a look at our emotional literacy workshop. Click Here

Step 2: Apply your emotional literacy to understanding your emotions. Click Here

Step 3: Now for the fun part, lets get thinking about what you have personally felt anticipating change. Look back over Step 1 and identify

  your emotion.

Step 4: When you next face anticipating even a small change, remind yourself the emotion you want to identify with those feelings. 

 

It's important to repeat these steps and continuing these steps as it won't get better instantly, but keep this up and your well on your way to a much better experience of change in your life! 

Enjoy, and let us know how you get on.

How many times can we all say we've been daunted by or rejected the idea of an upcoming change?

Now 9 out of 10 times the change isn't all that bad, and probably even good for us. So why do we reject it? Why can change become scary?

Making change Exciting, not Scary
