EP 207: 6 Quick Ways to Reset Your Brain
Do you get cattywampus and disharmonized during the day, decision fatigue, or experience the brain doesn’t seem to work the way you want it to?
In this episode, glean six easy ways to reset your brain, get going so you feel better, and come back around with vigor and joy. I cover the ones that I most recommend that I find extremely useful for the people I work with and use them myself.
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️ Humming throughout the day, especially if you’re in a traffic jam or there’s a lot of stress, will help remind the nervous system it’s going to be OK. It can be any song or made-up tune; it doesn’t matter. The humming vibration helps unify the vagus nerve, calm the system, and get everybody back in gear again.
✔️ Stop, close your eyes, take your hands off the keyboard. Just give yourself a couple of minutes reprieve, breathing, closing your eyes, and visually decreasing the stimulus. We remind our nervous system in our biology to rest and keep going.
✔️ Progressive relaxation means you squeeze a muscle group, and you relax it. Doing so gets the bad blood pumping and the interstitial fluid moving. We remind ourselves that a relaxed state and a tense state in our body have permission to relax, let go, and release.
✔️ Just breathe. Most people are breathing a little bit from the top of their chest instead of their belly, while most people hold their breath a lot, resulting in being in pain physically and emotionally.
✔️Count backwards from ten to one slowly with each exhale. When you open your eyes, you become calmer, and your brain processes better. Creativity gets better, and most importantly, my physiology and my neurology become more harmonized.
✔️ Move your body. When we cross our centerline, natural movement and simple exercises remind our right and left hemispheres of our brain to come together and cooperate and communicate.
