🧠 EXERCISE // Climbing Up the Brainstem
Unskillful or unconscious Self-Regulation vs. Intentional Self-regulation
We all have strategies for climbing back up the brainstem ~ or getting back into our window of tolerance (ventral vagal).
Some of them are good for us in the long-term, and others less so.
📝 REFLECTION // Mapping Self-Regulation Strategies
Draw THREE columns.
In the left column ~ write down some somatic signs or cognitive canaries that indicate that you’re experiencing reactivity.
In the middle column write down pattens + tendencies towards unhealthy or unconscious habitual self-regulation.
On the right-side list more desirable self-regulation strategies to explore… (could be some from this week’s theory)
