Let’s talk about something real for a moment – the pressure to be calm all the time. Seriously, who came up with that idea? As if we’re supposed to gracefully glide through life, breathing slowly in every situation. Well, let’s debunk that myth together because, truth be told, a constantly calm nervous system isn’t a healthy one.

Picture this: an emergency 500 feet away, and you’re strolling over with Zen-like calmness. Not the right response, right? We need a nervous system that can kick into gear when needed, but also knows how to return to a state of calm once the storm has passed.

So, what we’re aiming for is not constant calmness, but resilience. A nervous system that can handle stress appropriately and then bounce back to a state of calm, safety, and peace. Because, let’s face it, life throws curveballs, and we need to be able to catch them without getting stuck in a perpetual fight-or-flight mode.

Why Should You Care About a Regulated Nervous System?

First and foremost, it’s about you. You deserve to feel well, rested, sharp, and creative. You deserve to be free of anxiety and the feeling of constantly being on a hamster wheel. Your body deserves ease, good sleep, a healthy gut, and freedom from chronic tension and aches. You deserve to live with a regulated nervous system.

But it’s not just about you. Think about all the roles you play – mom, wife, leader, business owner, professional, community activist – you can’t fully embrace and excel in these roles with a dysregulated nervous system. When you’re stuck in fight or flight, your brain prioritizes survival, not the high-level communication, empathy, and reasoning needed for your various roles.

Now, let’s dive into three key reasons why healing your nervous system is a game-changer, especially for you, amazing moms.

3 Reasons Why You Need to Heal Your Burnout:

  1. Planning and Organizing: A regulated nervous system is your ticket off the hot mess express. Ever feel disorganized and overwhelmed despite your efforts to implement systems and routines? It might not be about discipline or motivation, but rather a dysregulated nervous system hindering access to your prefrontal cortex – the planning and organizing part of your brain.
  2. Respond Instead of React: Stuck in fight or flight? Your reactions are filtered through a survival lens, leading to a short fuse and emotional volatility. Healing your nervous system gives you more space between stimulus and response. This means you can be conscious of how you respond, especially in parenting, avoiding becoming the mom who snaps all day.
  3. Feel Calm Amidst the Chaos: Picture this: a chaotic house, kids everywhere, noise levels reaching epic proportions. Now, imagine feeling grounded, calm, and anchored in your presence. Healing your nervous system gives you the superpower to access inner calmness despite external chaos, creating a strong core and inner safe space.
