#49 Finding Calm Amidst Uncertainty Guided Practice
Aug 26, 2021
Jennifer O'Sullivan & Sarah Jane Shangraw

Unfortunately for humans, our nervous system's stress response only has two settings (on and off) even though we understand degrees of tension. Whether we feel the pressure of a work deadline or an existential threat, our body responds the same way.

However, we can "hack" the stress response with body-based tools that tell the nervous system that we're OK.

In this episode, Jen guides you through a simple and powerful embodiment practice using breath work and sensation to send a signal to your brain that you're OK even when there's tremendous uncertainty.
