Using Interoception, Proprioception, and Exteroception to Foster Resilience
Awareness of our inner self and bodily sensations (interoception), of our position and movement in space (proprioception), and of the stimuli coming from outside ourselves (exteroception) are key gateways to being present – something we are in great need of when we are stressed.
In my sixth conversation with trauma awareness activist Shay Seaborne, we discuss these three concepts AND give tips on how to cultivate each one. All three are important to our wellbeing, giving us key resources that help us build resilience in the face of both trauma and the everyday stresses of life.

It’s been wonderful doing these videos with Shay – piecing together bits of conversations we’ve had over the past couple of years in a coherent way for the public. This was the last one, but I have a feeling we will be recording more soon, as we are already creating our list of new topics and insights!
