Today, let’s dive into the world of nurturing our nervous systems. It might sound like a complex topic, but trust me, it’s all about having a lifestyle and practices that support a happy and regulated nervous system. Think about it as a way of living, thinking, acting, and even resting – it all plays a part in the grand scheme of things.

On our journey, we often encounter situations that can send our nervous system into a bit of chaos. Are we dealing with our traumas? Expressing our emotions? Moving our bodies? All of these factors contribute to whether our system becomes dysregulated or stays in a healthy, regulated state.

Body-Based Practices:

Now, let’s talk about some powerful practices that can truly transform your life by addressing the root causes. These practices are the game-changers, the ones that can shift the state of your nervous system and, consequently, your entire life.

But, of course, life happens, and sometimes we find ourselves in a fight, flight, or freeze response. Don’t worry, it’s completely normal. The key is to be aware of it and have tools to bring ourselves back to a regulated state, where we feel present, calm, and can think clearly.

Let’s break it down:

1. Fight Response: Picture this – edgy, irritable, short fuse, angry, aggressive – that’s the fight response. It’s like your body’s gas pedal is stuck, and you’re revving with energy. When this happens, don’t just jump to deep breaths to calm down. Instead, release that fight energy with activities like wall pushes, pool noodle hitting, or screaming into a pillow. Let it out in a healthy, non-violent way.

2. Flight Response: Similar to fight, flight gets your heart racing, breathing faster, and muscles tense. Flight is your body’s way of preparing to flee. In this state, it’s crucial to release that excess energy. Shaking, dancing, or physiological breath can be your go-to practices before introducing stillness through meditation. Connect with your body and let the anxious energy out first.

3. Freeze Response: Freeze is like slamming the brakes on your stress. You might feel disconnected, spaced out, or experience burnout and procrastination. To combat the freeze response, get into your body. Try a body scan, body squeeze/tapping, or orient yourself to the five senses. It’s all about reconnecting with the sensations of your body.

Remember, if any of this resonates with you, hop on the RESTORE waitlist. We’re opening registration for the spring cohort in April, and I’d love for you to snag a spot. Your well-being matters, mama!
