The Body Signals® tool box

Additional ideas, information and resources

Congratulations on purchasing the Body Signals®, one of our best loved and most empowering tools for children and adults alike.

While many of us have heard about emotional intelligence, we often don’t know much about body intelligence, that is, understanding the various ways our body communicates with us.

The 40 cards in Body Signals®, are filled with fun, lively, and very quirky, meercat characters that are perfect for helping us to recognise, name and explore the different ways our bodies send us messages. These messages may give us crucial information about what we are feeling (consciously or unconsciously) and how to stay safe.

Now that you have the cards, you will be wanting some fresh and innovative ideas for how to incorporate the cards into your work.

In this Tool Box, you will find the digital booklet which contains lots of information about the different types of body signals and how they can be interpreted, plus loads of activities and suggestions for how to use the cards in a variety of settings. (This can be printed as an A5 hardcopy booklet.)

As a BONUS gift to you, we are giving you access to the digital version of the cards! The digital cards are interactive, making them ideal for building rapport and connection. And because they are digital, you can use them anywhere, anytime.

Feel free to browse this page and get inspired by stories from other people on how they’ve used the cards. And don’t forget to explore the range of other supporting materials and information, which is at your fingertips any time you need it.

This Tool Box is exclusively for people who have purchased the cards. We will continue to add resources and ideas so check in regularly to see what’s new!

Tips for using the cards

Blog- Body Signals®—Signposts for Feelings

Our body signals are the gateway to recognising, interpreting and managing our feelings. That is why Body Intelligence (BQ) is such a fundamental aspect of developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

There are times when each of us, no matter how skilled we may be, has trouble recognising how we are feeling. When we have lost touch with our emotions as can happen with trauma, body signals can be a great support in helping us notice and interpret what we are feeling. Even when we are unable say how we are feeling emotionally, most of us can learn to identify and describe what is happening in our body—our ‘body signals’. Read more
