Hearing heartbeat improves self-awareness

New research suggests that hearing your own heartbeat can make you feel comfortable in your own skin.

The results of the study indicate that a person able to hear their own heart beating is less likely to objectify themselves than someone who can't. The concept lies within the idea that awareness of one's heartbeat tends to provide greater awareness of being inside of one's own body.

"If people are able to stand inside their bodies and feel their body, they have a good sense of what's happening inside themselves, and they're less likely to objectify themselves," said study co-author Vivien Ainley.

"How well people are able to hear their heartbeat is a good measure of their awareness of being inside their own body."

I am a little confused . I thought we all heard our own heart beat all the time . I know I do . Its rather annoying at times . I thought it was just something we got used to hearing so we did not really pay to much attention to it . I have always gotten a lot of ear infections in the past , I always hear my heart beating , Fast to slow . When I was a kid I used to hold my breath because my heart beat would change ... Again maybe I am just someone that can't stop hearing it 24/7

I could probably hear my heartbeat if i could just get the voices in my head to shut up for 5 minutes!
