"We remember it because we feel it." - Dr. Peggy Rowe Ward
The body is the foundation of mindfulness and the body knows. There are simple tools that can help people to quickly and easily stabilize the nervous system. For folks affected by and with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges...the nervous system is what we seek to move from being "stuck" to flow and sometimes we recognize to get unstuck whereas other times we don't recognize and know that we are stuck.
In this week's PTSDandBeyond Podcast Episode, Dr. Peggy Rowe Ward shares with us a tool, Resourcing, for creating positive memory capsules. She shares that our breath is a tool that we always have available and the key to this tool of Resourcing is to practice. We have to practice using this tool. In the PTSDandBeyond Podcast episode, Dr. Rowe Ward guides our own Mark Gruesbeck through this exercise!
Dr. Rowe Ward further shares that trauma energy gets stuck in us and has an impact on the nervous system. We can learn how to be in the "Zone of Well-Being" and how to learn to self-regulate where we help ourselves release this stuck energy and can help others. We learn to be okay with how and where we are and we can share this with others.
"I need inspiration to live." - Dr. Peggy Rowe Ward
While we are hardwired for threats, which links to negative information, through daily practice we can feel happy, be happy, and learn how to Resource ourselves and save it to our "hard drive." Inspiration is always there and touches the soul.
