Explain conscience

A conscience is the voice in your head and the feeling in your heart that helps you know if something is right or wrong. Your conscience compares what you want to do or say against your core values, the guiding principles that tell you if something is right or wrong. Your conscience looks at whether something is Honest, Respectful, Responsible, Caring and Fair, and then gives you signals about whether the thing you want to do feels like the right thing or the wrong thing to do.

Connect the mind and the body: Good Choices Feel Good

What are some ways your conscience tells you a choice is right? If your heart feels full and glowy, if you are proud of your choice... those are ways your conscience tells you it's a good decision. If you feel tightness in your heart or twisty in your stomach, if you feel nervous about getting caught... those are ways your conscience tells you something may be a wrong choice.
