About the Holiday

Celebration of the Senses Day is a day to step beyond our normal sensory perceptions and take the time to exercise your latent senses. Unlike animals, people tend to over-rely on our vision to process information, or are simply too busy to stop and fully perceive the environment around us. In our distracted lifestyles, we many times overlook the distinct qualities of new objects or even things we interact with day. Try the following as a starting point for Celebration of the Senses Day...

  • Go outside and close your eyes; listen to the sounds, feel the breezes and try to pick up on outdoor scents.
  • In your home (away from stairs) close your eyes and try to navigate to different rooms.
  • Close your eyes and have someone take objects from the refrigerator and see if you can guess the items by their smell.
  • Turn on music that you normally don't listen too and sit down with nothing else to distract you (no games or reading material) fully take in the music. Try to pick out the different instruments used.
  • Take a normal, everyday object that you've seen a thousand times, and take a really close look at it. Use a magnifying glass to look closely. Close your eyes and feel its texture.
  • Have a type of food you've never had before. Close your eyes as you eat it.
