Choose 5 activities you do daily and indicate whether the activity uses your sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system. 3 of my daily activities are reading, walking, and writing. I need help thinking of 2 more. Also- How do I determine if the activity uses the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is a comparison:

SNS arouses the body- dilates pupils, accelerates heart beat, raise blood pressure, slow your digestion, cool you with perspiration, make you alert and ready for action
PNS- calms the body- decreasing heartbeat, lowering blood sugar,contracts pupil, stimulates digestion, contracts bladder, allows blood to flow to sex organx
How does nervous system control the activity of writing?
