Hope you are having a great summer!
Wow, what a wild ride life can be. We sorted my father’s estate last month and then made it to the east coast for a friend’s wedding over in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Going to stay put over here for this summer.
I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, like I was on a moving train and if I let go, everything around me would derail. Have you ever felt the same?
Stress and overwhelm used to be my goto actions to get things done, but now in this phase of my life, I desire more space in my day and co-existing with others in a heart-centered manner versus a stressed, crazy person:)
These are some of the phrases for stress…
in the weeds
stretched too thin
burning the candle at both ends
too much on our plate
Sometimes pressure can help us focus and get things done. Sometimes it can go on for WAY too long and then our body gets the brunt.
When we are constantly operating under pressure, our nervous system will try to keep up until it can’t.
Some symptoms that occur…
- Brain fog
- Low energy
- Depressive mood
- Salt and sweet cravings
- Sleep disorders
- Digestive Disorders
A stressed nervous system can lead to Adrenal fatigue which is when the adrenals have been overworked to a degree that they can no longer secrete levels of cortisol that are adequate for optimal function.
Besides adding in foods rich in magnesium and Vitamin B such as:
- brown rice
- dark green vegetables: spinach, and sea veggies
- legumes: lentils, and split peas
- beans: black, kidney, edamame
- nuts: almonds, cashews, and Brazil nuts
- seeds: sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin
Let’s give our nervous and operating system a RESET!
Change up your Monday evening by relaxing in your pajamas and resting your body to release emotional congestion, JUDGEMENT, and pressure.
Join me for a Neurodynamic Breathwork session.
This music-led, SIMPLE breath technique, helps process emotions, reduce mental stress, and can feel like you are doing your own therapy session.
If you are craving a more gentle, self-led, Heather-guided:), relaxed modality to move some stuck energy, I got ya!
Plus, remember, the #1 we release toxins is through our exhale. And this time of year is a great time to focus on detoxification.
Whether you have excess emotional congestion, mucus, shopping therapy, overwhelm, or the overall feeling heavy, breathwork will create more space for you to move through feeling stuck.
You don’t need to have your video on or talk.
Some signs your nervous system is rebooting are: Yawning, watery eyes, muscles tightening then relaxing, release in your joints and tendons, and you feel serene after.
Sign up for the Breathwork group session below…
Monday, June 12 @ 5:30 pm PST/8:30 pm EST
Monday, June 26th @ 5:30 pm PST/8:30 pm EST
with abundant nourishment,
Heather Fleming, C.C.N.
