Episode 38: Down Regulation and Real Talk
Hello fellow birth workers!
Today's episode is a little different.
Here's some background before I explain.
Life has been a lot, for all of us. Personally, I'm quite sensitive to being overwhelmed and overstimulated. I've cut way back on my own podcast consumption and really being very mindful of what I read, watch and listen too.
This mindfulness as helped support my mental and emotional health over the last few months.
I've had to reassess how I serve in my business with all these transitions. Being in a house and isolated from my community has been rough, and so I'm having to make adjustments. One of those adjustments is putting the Thriving Birth Worker Podcast on hiatus. I always want my work to be an authentic reflection of who I am, and right now, I'm not able to put more noise out into this noisy world authentically.
But I'm not going anywhere, just shifting. I'm still going to be filming classes, reading amazing articles and books and sharing them, but in a different format. I'm going to be pouring my focus into my newsletter. If you're not signed up yet, I encourage you to do so, as that's where I'll be able to most easily connect with you and share upcoming workshops, classes and other amazing resources, all in one place!
And in the same vein, today's podcast not going to be lots of words for you to digest, but a guided down regulation practice. Embodiment is key and often it is super helpful to have some guidance in the process, rather than to do it for 90 seconds and then feel like we're done (I'm including myself in that statement!).
This practice can be done on your bed or on the floor, but grab plenty of pillows and blankets to bolster yourself so you feel super supported and comfortable.
Hit play and enjoy moving your tiny parts as you rest your whole body.
Thank you so much for joining me on this journey. I'm excited to connect with you via my newsletter next week!
As always, I'm available via email or on my social media platforms and love connecting!
