This landed in my inbox this morning, and I couldn’t agree more!

Thank you to the many people in our field who are studying and supporting health of our nervous systems, which is just another way to say: let’s deal with stress management. This was from Dr. Linnea at Heal Your Nervous System, who offers deeper dive mind-body programs to do just that. 

Did you know you can reverse the damage that chronic dysregulation has inflicted on your body?

As a result, you will find yourself experiencing less chronic pain, fewer flare-ups of chronic conditions, and improved body-mind health.

Here are seven signs your body is healing from dysregulation:

  1. You are more in control of how you react to emotions and feel mentally stronger.
  2. You aren’t drained by other people or by your own negative self-talk.
  3. You actually live your life instead of constantly feeling triggered by everything.
  4. You resolve the burnout cycle of taking on too much and then having to withdraw when you have no more energy.
  5. You can tune in to your intuition and clearly distinguish it from anxiety.
  6. You finally stop the 24/7 stream of ruminating thoughts and enjoy your free time.
  7. You aren’t limited (or even resentful) of your sensitivity anymore and start leveraging the superpowers it gives you instead.

People who can regulate their nervous system:

  • Feel more in control and are less likely to be overwhelmed by their feelings or controlled by them: even if the emotions are intense, they know how to manage them.
  • Experience better self-esteem and a greater sense of safety in the world.
  • Have higher levels of creativity and clarity because they’re more connected to their intuition and inner wisdom.
  • Can let go of perfectionism because they prioritize the process over the outcome.
  • Can live with greater presence and purpose in life because they’re not driven by fear or anxiety.
  • They can better manage their energy and focus, leading to increased productivity.
  • Because they are not as easily defensive, they can have more fulfilling relationships with others.
  • Because they are not as easily offended, they tend to be more open-minded and tolerant of others.

Overall, people with regulated nervous systems are more content and connected in their lives. It’s empowering to know that you can take conscious steps toward achieving this state of well-being.
