The art of slowing down

First of all, you need to slow down and breathe. If you are living at a very high speed, having difficulties catching your breath and finding five minutes for yourself, you need to slow down and create that time and space. You have to pay more attention to your feelings and to find your own pace in order to be able to heal. Learn to say “no” if needed, take care of your own well-being, do less and choose your priorities. The only way to avoid burnout and the negative effects of the overactive nervous system is to slow down, find your rhythm and move accordingly. When it is about your health, no task is nor urgent as at one point your body will force you to slow down by an illness or a condition, you need to avoid that and do something in advance.

Have a good rest and some sleep

It is part of slowing down – to feel when you really need to rest, to take a nap or to sleep more. It is essential to balance your active hours with a good rest. Having a massage, a bath, a long shower, a deep relaxation session or a nap could be crucial for your well-being at one point. Instead of forcing yourself into going and going, doing more and more, find the space to just calm down and rest, set your priorities and be gentle to yourself. Rest and digest is the healthy alternative to the “fight, flight or freeze” reaction to life challenges. Have a good rest and go over your strategy on how to tackle your challenge instead of rushing yourself into it, taking hectic actions and ending up exhausted and depleted. 

Work on your thoughts and emotions

Yes, your thinking patterns are these monsters in your head which are making your life miserable on a daily basis. If you want to calm down your overactive nervous system, you need to stop overthinking, limit the negative beliefs that you have, stop the negative internal dialogue which is full of all these undermining programs set there a long time ago. What you think will affect your emotions, and your emotions will affect the hormonal balance and your overall health. Each illness and disease starts in the mind first, then it manifests on the physical level. 

Tap into joy

Having fun and enjoying your time could have a deep healing effect on your nervous system. Develop self-love and acceptance, embrace yourself and find your inner peace if you want to really calm down and enjoy life. Laughter is a very good exercise as it boosts your mood, increases your blood circulation and activates many muscles, it will improve your digestion and will help you change the focus on how you perceive life. Having fun is healing you on so many levels, make it a priority. Going outside for a walk and to observe the beauty of nature around you will also help to tap into joy and beauty. 

Improve your metabolism, support your body

If you want to take the responsibility, you will need to embrace a balanced and nutritious diet, make some lifestyle changes and take care of yourself.
