Have you ever been in a situation where you logically knew you were ok but you didn't feel ok? And no matter how many times you told yourself you were fine or to calm down it didn't seem to help? This is because your nervous system speaks a somatic FELT language, not a verbal one. You will never be able to outthink your anxiety or depression. In this episode I take a deep dive into what that actually means and introduce you to some tangible tools that can communicate safety to your nervous system in a way it understands. Hit play to learn more!
✨ 3 Takeaways from this episode:
Awareness & a new lens: You can’t talk your way out of anxiety or depression. You can logically understand you’re safe and still not FEEL safe. Logically know you’re OK, and still not FEEL ok.
Tune in and pay attention to what it FEELS like to be activated to be moving down the ladder vs moving up towards regulation. Maybe log certain things that feel activating/triggering vs regulating.
Choose one of the 3 practices I mentioned: legs up wall, extended exhale, eye orienting to do this week. Adding to your bank of regulation reps that help move you up that Nervous System Ladder & overtime, help to reset your baseline.
