Creating sensation is a powerful way to help our bodies release tension, calm the nervous system and create a sense of safety within our bodies and our relationships.
Brené Brown says “we are emotional, feeling beings who on rare occasions think”. We feel deeply so let’s create and feel sensations to help us move through the stress cycle and build more resilience by feeling our bodies.
Weighted blankets, massage balls, foam rollers, baths and yoga are all ways to direct awareness back into the body and can help us feel safer.
If we are attuned to our bodies, we can feel safer in our environment. We can take deep breaths, lengthen our exhales and ride the waves of feelings as we live through each moment.
There is no escaping the pain that life can sometimes bring but we can use our tools to move through it with as much grace and ease as possible, knowing it too shall pass.
Most of us were not taught how to do this growing up, I know I wasn't. It’s not our fault but it is our responsibility to learn now as adults. It’s never too late to learn how to cope with stress, practice better sleep habits and build resilience.
Releasing tension is key to calming our nervous system so that we can feel safer within ourselves and our relationships. For a free Morning Yoga video to calm the nervous system and release tension, click here.
