Before leaving for an important meeting or presentation are you feeling nervous?
Feeling anxious and overwhelmed on a regular basis?
Due to sitting in one place for long hours do you feel exhausted?
Your somatic nervous system allows you to move and control muscles throughout your body. It also feeds information from four of your senses — smell, sound, taste and touch — into your brain.
Try these few techniques of self-soothing to calm your mind and to regulate your somatic nervous system.
- Stand up and shake out your whole body. As you are shaking, inhale through the nose and then exhale making a brrrr sound with your lips Repeat 3 to 5 times.
- Clench your hands into fists & lift your shoulders to ears. Squeeze 15-30 secs. Release squeeze – open your hands & spread fingers, drop shoulders & open up your chest. See how relaxed your body can feel. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
- Move your body. Choose three different parts of your body to adjust — move your head side to side, tap your foot, or touch your thumb to each finger. Repeat 3 to 5 times.
Stay away from Anticipatory anxiety and try to be mindful that is be fully aware of the present moment.
