We talk a lot about “doing the work” and “using the tools,” and this week we are breaking down exactly what that means.
Self-care means a lot of different things to people and for us, at its core, it’s about grounding and calming the nervous system.
When you experience anxiety, especially on a daily basis, you lose blood flow to the executive functioning part of your brain. This is the area that is necessary for formulating new ideas, perceptions, thoughts, beliefs etc.
You CAN NOT even remotely see things differently and certainly can’t create new, sustainable changes in your life unless your nervous system is grounded. It’s a non-negotiable. So if you battle with anxiety, worry, fear, depression etc., you might experience a very circling the drain type existence. Always trying to manage your worries and thoughts and never actually making a lot of headway when it comes to seeing real changes. And/or it might be a matter of “powering through.” If you believe that sustainable change is hard, this one is for you.
We are all about self-care that packs a punch and truly grounds the nervous system, allowing for a maximum blood flow so that you are able to easily and fluidly step into change and make it last.
