Cristina and Dana are back after a podcast summer break! We know that the back to school & fall season can bring up the desire to want to get ‘back on track’ with a rigid routine, and a lot of perfectionism and stress can accompany that. This fall we’re focusing on bringing you episodes on different pillars of health and how we can approach them with a whole-hearted eating, add-in mentality, rather than the typical all-or-nothing eliminate all the things mentality. In the meantime, we recommend listening to: How to get back on track without dieting or restriction
Our guest today is Alyssa Chang, who specializes in neuroscience health coaching with a trauma-informed approach; which focuses on creating safety to provide an optimal healing space. We chat about the nervous system and how our body responds to threats (aka stress) with the fight, flight, freeze and fawn responses. Alyssa also dives deep into what happens in the body when our stress or threat bucket gets full, and what we can do about it with some practical, brain-based action steps.
