How To Regulate Your Nervous System

Our nervous system is made up of two parts.

The Sympathetic Nervous System and the Parasympathetic Nervous System. The sympathetic nervous system readies the body for fight or flight. To get out of harms way.

The parasympathetic nervous system restores the body to a greater sense of calm. Ideally, these two parts work synergistically.

Many people who have suffered trauma or are under a great source of stress can find their nervous system stuck in the sympathetic intensity of fight or flight creating anxiety, insomnia and other uncomfortable symptoms.
