  • Body awareness is one’s understanding of own body and where and how it is moving
  • A major part of body awareness development occurs through exposure to varied movement experiences in play
  • Body awareness is a foundation on which children build good movement skills


Body awareness is one’s understanding of own body and where and how it is moving. This involves combining and making sense of information from the sensory systems of balance (vestibular system), touch (tactile system) and positioning (proprioceptive system). The more effectively one can do this, the better their body awareness.

Coming from a large family I have seen the disease
ravage friends and family members, as complications developed causing
the loss of sight, heart disease and nerve dysfunction.
Avoid bread, alcohol, sweetened drinks, fried foods and savoury snacks at all costs.
Another thing we hear all the time is that
raw food is better - as in healthier- than
cooked food.

This is such an important topic! It's hard enough to get kids to be physically active, but just to mindlessly run around or participate in overly-structur ed sports programs isn't enough. The types of body awareness activities you suggest are so important to developing self-confidence , self-esteem, enhancing learning, etc.
