After my interview with Katrina Sorrentino about leaving a toxic relationship much of what she said struck a cord. One thing that stood out was the need to calm our nervous systems. It's essential and it coincided with multiple lessons and content about this from Somatic Therapists who help heal trauma. In this short episode, I'm sharing my thoughts before we move on to the next interview about leaving abuse with Kate Heaton. I'm doing this intentionally because attention to our nervous system and a sense of "safety" is what we need to feel okay to explore leaving or even listening to others' stories. To understand more about this concept I've collected a few podcasts and videos below. Here's a related episode I recorded for Audacious Mamas https://www.audaciousmamas.com/relaxation-and-safety-keys-to-success-in/ After recording my episode above, I listened to an interview with Emily Fletcher, meditation expert, and she hits all the points and more. Mainly that you cannot expect to jump from anxiety, overwhelm, and depression to meditation. There's an in-between state of calming your system that's essential. https://youtu.be/6V1hG5wWr6o Somatic Therapy - what it is https://www.verywellmind.com/what-is-somatic-therapy-5190064 How Stored Trauma Creates Somatic Symptoms https://youtu.be/vPIDRm6XtYM
