how to soothe your nervous system
‘do you often open your eyes in the morning to a feeling of niggling, uncomfortable butterflies in your stomach ?
or do you wake up with sweats in the night for no apparent reason ?
… perhaps you just can’t ever sleep in – even when you need it most.
these are all things that we can experience alongside anxious feelings.
while they are a natural short term response to stress, if we experience these kinds of things for too long, they can tip our health towards a number of more serious health challenges.
remember that everything that you experience from your body is feedback. from the minor discomforts to any frustrations you have with your body – it’s all designed to help wake you up to what your body, mind or soul needs.
frequent anxious feelings and their connected symptoms tell us that our stress response is on hyper alert. while we may or may not know the factors that are causing this stress response, a helpful first step is to work towards soothing and supporting the nervous system.
here are some ideas that can help with that
🕊 acknowledge: anxious feelings can be overwhelming, and it can be tempting to somewhat ignore them – to busy yourself in daily life so you don’t have to stop and feel what’s really there. or to think that this is just how life is for you now and that there’s nothing you can do about it. we tend to think we feel this way because of everything outside of us – situations, tasks, other people… yet rather than blaming external factors, i encourage you to pause and simply acknowledge the anxious feelings when they are present. they are your response to these external factors. making this distinction might sound simple but when we shine a light on things as they are, it can start to take their power away. and with more calm, we can more easily see that there are a variety of ways to respond to what is bothering us, and we might be reminded that from our discomfort we have an opportunity to learn and grow.
🕊 accept: accept that you have anxious feelings present and also know that they will pass. don’t let your mind go into any ‘why’s, how’s or shouldn’ts’ around your anxious feelings, just acknowledge and accept that they’re there. our thoughts influence our biochemistry, so delving into more thoughts around the why’s/how’s/shouldn’t’s can actually drive our stress response up further, keeping us stuck in a vicious cycle and not affording us any insight.
🕊 amp up: amp up your belly breaths AND amp up your intake of whole, real foods and the nutrients they offer. did you know some of the best nutrients for soothing the nervous system come from plants ? when putting together the formula for the bio blends supplement calm restore, i spent countless hours researching this. inside you’ll find five of the highest quality and most effective plants, herbs and foods that work with the body to soothe and calm the nervous system.
remember, anxious feelings can simply be messengers asking us to eat, drink, move, think, breathe, believe or perceive differently.
what could yours be asking you to do ?
take such good care of your precious self.
