7 senses!

I thought there were 5!

The five senses that we are familiar with are: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching.

The other two senses are PROPRIOCEPTION and VESTIBULAR.

Proprioception is the sense that tells you where your arm is in space when your eyes are closed.

Vestibular is the sense that tells you whether you are moving or standing still. Using all of these senses can help you to feel calmer.
