JOIN ME for this free 45 minute online class and find out how.
I don’t know about you, but with all that’s happened locally and globally in 2020 so far, these last few months have probably been the most emotionally variable I have ever had. Our nervous systems have their own patterns and nuances. Mine tends towards over-stimulation rather than under, so in recent months there have been many opportunities for my fight-flight system to be triggered.
This has made me want to understand the nervous system even more, and to add to my own toolkit about how to not only settle our nerves and stress responses, but also how to take overall care of our wellbeing. I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned.
It’s totally normal for our body to trigger into fight-flight when we feel we might be in some kind of danger (real or perceived). We’re hard-wired for it.
But it doesn’t help us to stay in that fight or flight reaction, or to keep going into it over and over again.
So how do get yourself back out again quickly? And what can help you stay out of it?
The answer is two-fold – understand a little about how the autonomic nervous system works and use simple strategies for shifting it out of stress and into calm. Over the years I’ve collected a range of techniques to do this, and topped up the toolkit even more in recent months. They are amazing, simple strategies virtually anyone can do.
I’d love to give you some of these tools to use straight away.
In this 45 minute class you will learn:
- How the autonomic nervous system operates when we’re in fight-flight
- What the vagus nerve has to do with being calm, and how to activate it
- Several key doorways to the nervous system you can utilise immediately to feel calmer and clearer
- Amazingly simple ways to de-activate your sympathetic nervous system (the stress response), and move into your parasympathetic mode of rest and replenish.
- Tools and techniques you can use instantly and that can be used at work and home and across a range of situations during the day as well as to support sleep.
Plus you’ll have access to the accompanying aide memoir with all of the tools laid out for you (PDF file).
This class was designed to be relaxing and practical. I don’t get into a lot of detail around the science of the nervous system, just enough to put context around the tools and explain how you can take more charge of how you feel.

I know we’re all doing our best to keep calm and carry on. However, no matter how rational we might be in our minds about what is happening around us, our body is going to have its own responses. You can apply as much logic as you like, but the reptilian brain at the back of your head will still get activated if it feels you’re in any kind of danger, and it can become habitual. Fortunately we can interrupt these reactions and start to lessen them with a few savvy strategies.
Have you ever thought about how the emotional and physical state you’re in colours how you see situations? Research shows that our story and experience of something is highly influenced by the mental and emotional state we’re in. This is a core understanding from polyvagal theory and a very good reason to keep our internal state as resourceful as possible. When we do, it’s easier to make decisions, see the bigger picture, feel more sense of possibility, be more creative and have more energy.
From a calm state we can see with more perspective, protect our body from stress, and be more creative in our response to the moment.
