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.

When you want to take action, your conscience compares what you want to do against your core values, like Honesty, Repect, Responsibility, Fairness and Caring. Then it sends you signals about whether what you want to do (or have done) is in line with what you think is right or wrong.

Connect the mind and the body: Good Choices Feel Good

What are some ways your conscience tells you a choice is right? Does your heart feel full? Do you feel proud? What are some ways your conscience helps you know if a choice is wrong? Does your heart feel tight or twisty? Do you feel nervous or worried?
