Mapping How Emotions Manifest in the Body

I find it helpful to see a visual of what people express concerning where they feel emotions in their bodies. Art for Insight does this in various ways through simple art projects that can be done in a single session with materials most of us have laying around.

"A new study by Finnish researchers published today (12-31-13) in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences, suggests that our emotions do indeed tend to influence our bodies in consistent ways.
...The results likely reveal subjective perceptions about the impact of our mental states on the body, a combination of muscle and visceral reactions and nervous system responses that we can’t easily differentiate."
