Trust your Body

Editorial illustration for Psyche Magazine article about interoception - the ability of perceiving one’s own body from within.
This practice can be achieved through body scanning or meditation exercises and allows us to embrace the physical reactions to feelings, thoughts and outside stimuli, especially the unpleasant ones, in a neutral and calm way. It is surprising how learning how to listen to our body can improve our mental health and reduces social anxiety.
My illustration’s intention is to honour the human body as a beautiful ensemble of colourful organs, pulsating with the symphony of perceptions and sensations that happens under our skin at every second. 
This illustration is made using coloured pencils and edited digitally.
