This is part 3 of a 3 episode mini series about depression.
It's not enough to understand WHY you're struggling with depression, you also need to have tangible tools to regulate your nervous system and heal. In this episode we will build on the education and exploration from part 1 & 2 of this mini series. You'll learn that the secret to regulating your nervous system is to first meet it where it's at and then layer on various regulation tools to walk it towards feeling more connected and mobilized. I also introduce you to a number of specific regulation tools for you to start using today! Hit play to learn more!
✨ 3 Takeaways from this episode:
The evolutionary job of this state is to conserve energy, maybe giving you a chance to escape if the opportunity arises, or to die a relatively painless death which is where those numbing chemical and disconnection come in. You are not meant to spend a lot of time in this state, it’s meant for things that feel life threatening but it can become a default state for those who’ve experienced trauma or long-term chronic stress.
Meet your nervous system where it is first and then slowly layer tools or shift intensity as you become more regulated.
I invite you into some good ole fashion trial and error to discover the most helpful tools or practice for you.
