Susan believes that in order to relieve physical pain, stress must first be relieved. One needs to be relaxed for rest and repair to take place.
Each of us holds the stories of our life in our bodies. The stories that nourish us, possibly giving us feelings of expansiveness in our tissues and the difficult stories that may create contraction within us.
How can we learn to not feel so charged (ignited) by our difficult stories? I offer that we can learn to regulate our Nervous System (NS) by using simple grounding techniques in body awareness, slowing down and feeling present in the moment. We can bring more focus to the stories or things that nourish our bodies, our physiological responses and create regulation in our NS.
Coming into balance or homeostasis may require regular tuning in, figuring out how we feel or experience ourselves in the now and work from that place to turn down the dial if you need to relax or stay as we are if we feel just right.
Slowing down is a very helpful tool to feel grounded, checking in with our breath and feeling the weight of our feet on the ground also brings us into the present moment and turns down the stress dial.
