Most of us spend our days in a state of overdrive. Rushing through each experience, leaning into the next: shoulders tight, breath shallow, muscles taut, awareness dimmed. Life ends up passing us by. Not only do we miss out on most of life when we spend it in this state of overdrive, we also create a breakdown in the self-healing and self-regulating capacity of the body. A balanced brain and nervous system is essential for robust health. What are some simple ways that we can start to slow down and engage the aspects of the nervous system's that promote healing and repair?
Here are some of my top picks:
2. Eat regular meals to keep blood sugars balanced
3. Spend time in nature
4. Get enough sleep
5. Spend time with those you love
7. Practice Gratitude
