    Mind-Body Tools to Develop Stress Resilience with Rebekkah LaDyne

    Mind-Body Tools to Develop Stress Resilience with Rebekkah LaDyne

    Stress is part of life. When stress becomes too intense, too much and too frequent it overwhelms our nervous system, and awakens stress imprints from our past and we lose the ability to effectively recover from it. And for the past year-and-a-half we have been all pushed to our limits and stress and overwhelm have been ever more present in our lives. With stress activation unhealed and unprocessed, we can go through life almost on autopilot. Listen to this fantastic conversation as Rebekkah LaDyne talks about developing mind-body tools for stress resilience. 
    Key Points:
    How parenting is an emotional experience and can place tremendous stress on our mind and body, especially if we have trauma history How there is beginning, middle and end to stress and how we often don’t allow ourselves to experience the end, and new stresses over lapse causing more overwhelm  How we can develop resilience by daily mind-body practices and there is no quick fix Why the key to well-being and resilience lies in befriending our body OTHER EPISODES YOU MAY ENHOY
