When it’s Hard to be Still – Do This Instead

It’s virtually impossible to go from a hyper-aroused state, feeling overwhelmed and anxious to being completely still, yet many of us are trying to do just that…

Stillness can be a wonderful goal, however, when trying to go from 100 to 0 with the flip of a switch doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t mean you’re “not doing something right.” It means you’re a sensitive person who’s maybe on overdrive and needs a different tactic.

For sensitive, deep-feeling folks, building resilience by focusing on cultivating a flexible nervous system is key.

Let the journey from anxiety to stillness be a rhythmic dance, and not an all-or-nothing thing. Allow for a sense of deceleration, rather than seeking to come to a screeching a halt.

As I am always inviting us to do, look to nature’s rhythms for guidance. We don’t go from summer to winter – autumn is in the middle, the deceleration. Going from hyper-aroused to stillness requires your own autumn.

Join me to discuss the hows and whys of this process.
