Have a “Wonder Week.” Each day concentrate on a different sense: Monday, smell; Tuesday, touch; Wednesday, taste; Thursday, seeing; Friday, hearing; and Saturday, synesthesia (the interplay of the senses). Notice what each sense is drawn to and irritated by. Try to expose your senses to new sensations. Go into a natural food store, where herbs and spices are stored in bulk, and see how many you can identify by smell alone. Walk barefoot. Look for odd color combinations. Scan the stations on your radio, noticing types of music, modulations of voices, and more.
