Ways to Improve Your Senses

For centuries, we've noted the importance of improving one's natural senses. "That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet," lamented Juliet famously in Shakespeare’s "Romeo and Juliet." But a rose—or anything else—will only smell as sweet as your senses allow it. Our senses are incredibly complex, and all five of them work together to inform and educate us about the world. They are interconnected, designed to work with one another, and move through phases of efficiency throughout our lives. Some factors affecting the efficiency of our senses are beyond our control, such as age or illness.

But there are ways in which we can improve our senses, making the world around us come alive with sounds, smells or sights we may once not have been picked up on. Our sixth sense tells us that you might find some of the tips here useful.
