EP 179: SOLO JAM SESSION: HOW TO REWIRE YOUR SURVIVAL SYSTEM [& START OPERATING FROM LOVE VS. FEAR]

We all have a part of our brains that is wired for survival and sometimes this can cause us to be reactive and project fear when little things happen. In this episode, I’m sharing how not to give in to survival strategies but learn to work with them. I also share how to recognize when you are triggered and why learning the art of regulating your nervous system is so powerful.

Inside this episode I jam on:

  • How anxiety can manifest as fear
  • Why our survival system reacts
  • How to check in and remind yourself you are safe
  • Learning how to activate your breath when triggered
  • Why it’s important to “train” your mind and body
