Today, I’m diving into a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts: regulating our nervous systems. Now, you might be wondering, why is this important? Well, let me tell you, having a well-regulated nervous system brings a whole array of benefits that can truly transform our lives:

Benefits of a Regulated Nervous System

  1. Improved Mood and Emotional Balance: Who doesn’t want to feel happier and more emotionally stable, right?
  2. Increased Creativity: Imagine tapping into your creative side with ease, unleashing your inner artist or problem solver.
  3. Reduced Stress, Anxiety, and Overwhelm: Say goodbye to that constant feeling of being overwhelmed and hello to a more peaceful state of mind.
  4. Better Sleep and Physical Recovery: Quality sleep and quicker physical recovery? Yes, please!
  5. Improved Digestive Function: A happy gut means a happy life, as they say.
  6. Increased Overall Resilience: Ultimately, our goal is to build resilience, to be able to navigate life’s ups and downs with grace and strength.

Now, I’m not here to offer quick fixes or temporary bandaids. Nope, what I’m talking about are lifestyle changes that will support a healthy and resilient nervous system in the long run.

So, let’s get into it!

4 Game-Changing Habits

1. More Time Outside

Let’s keep it simple, shall we? Our bodies crave time in nature. So, get outside, soak up some sunlight, and breathe in that fresh air. Nature has a magical way of calming our nervous system, reducing stress levels, and promoting relaxation. Plus, exposure to natural light helps regulate our sleep-wake cycles, leading to better mood and energy levels.

2. Emotional Hygiene

It’s time to recycle or release those big emotions, mama. Holding onto anger, frustration, or grief is like trying to keep a ball underwater—it takes a lot of energy and ultimately stresses out our systems. So, let’s change our mindset around emotions and create a safe space to release them. And hey, if you need some guidance on how to do that, I’ve got you covered.

3. Get Off Your Phone

I know, I know, this one might sting a little. But trust me when I say that your phone could be a major culprit in dysregulating your nervous system. From endless notifications to constant demands, it’s a recipe for overwhelm. So, let’s set some boundaries around our phone usage—no phone during certain times of the day, turning off notifications, and maybe even leaving it in another room when it starts to feel like too much.

4. Notice Your Somatic Cues

Our bodies are constantly sending us messages, but are we listening? Pay attention to those somatic cues—headaches, gut issues, neck pain—they’re trying to tell us something. By tuning into these signals, we can better understand what our bodies need and make adjustments accordingly.
