Interoception is a mental feeling about the state of our health and body, it recognizes signals that are interpreted into any actions.

We are talking about some internal markers, such as thirst or temperature. According to scientists, it is thanks to the sixth sense that we eat when we are hungry and dress warmer when we are cold.

In addition to the fundamental physical indicators of our health, interoception regulates the mental state of a person. An example is depression, irritability, anxiety and other markers that the body conditionally sends to external pathogens.
