Your five senses play an important role in your daily life. Every moment in your life, you use at least one of your five senses. You touch, hear, see, taste, and smell in order to adapt to a new environment. The five senses are important for everyone. For those who are blind or deaf, they still use the other three senses. The five senses work together all the time in order to allow your body to function properly and lets your life be easier. Your brain is the general CPU for your body. The nerves in your nose, skin, tongue, eye, and ear will take in all of the different things around your environment. It brings all the different sights, smells, feelings, sounds, and tastes together and sends messages to tell your brain what they are like. There, your brain processes the information and lets you know what you are smelling, seeing, feeling, hearing, or tasting.
