The #1 Way to Improve Stability in Your Body & Life

Why is stability important for health & well-being?

WHY IS STABILITY IMPORTANT?

 

STABILITY IS SO IMPORTANT, because BALANCE is so important.

 

When you are out of balance, you put yourself at risk for illness or injury.

 

 

 

Both STABILITY & BALANCE PROTECT THE BODY from overuse & unnecessary wear & tear that often leads to illness or injury.

 

 

And in a culture that values rushing & quick fixes, most of us suffer from the mental wear & tear of anxiety & never-feeling-good-enoughness.

 

 

These are large stressors on the body because the nervous system gets overused by sympathetic dominance syndrome.

 

 

 

Sympathetic dominance syndrome is an imbalance in how the nervous system controls the body. The “on-switch” in our body gets jammed & we operate out of reactivity – which is draining & unsustainable.

 

Operating solely from the “on-switch” function of our nervous system creates an imbalance in our body’s ability to ward off dis-ease or heal.

 

 

 

⭐️ Stability offers a sense of protection because it allows us to feel safe & sturdy.

 

???????? And when we feel safe, we can operate from a sanctuary of creativity, connection & joy. Instead of a dungeon of reactivity & depletion.

 

 

 

HOW DOES INSTABILITY SHOW UP IN LIFE & IN THE BODY?

Before we dive deeper into how to improve the stability in your life, let’s first discuss what unstable feels like.

 

 

 

Feeling UNSTABLE IN LIFE, could show up as:

Constantly stressed at work, and/or with lifeStressed because you are always managing conflicts in your relationshipsDisconnected from the world & othersUnable to set healthy boundaries for yourself

 

 

Feeling UNSTABLE IN YOUR BODY, may show up as:

Negative self talk & crippling self doubtYour energy gets “sucked” out of you, leaving you drainedNot feeling “at home” in your bodyToo busy to take care of yourself, always in a rushCaught-up in cycles of numbing & avoiding your bodyApathetic or lethargic Chronic pain, fatigue & weakness

 

We all have patterns of behavior that disrupt our ability to move forward in life.

 

 

The first step is BECOMING AWARE OF YOUR PATTERNS.

 

Identifying when you get trapped in cycles of low, negative energy, gives you the power to choose something different.

 

Choosing different might look like practicing a new morning routine or consciously using new words to describe how you feel.

 

 

The point is not to get trapped in the black or white of good-bad, right-wrong, it’s about feeling stable in the gray. And allowing yourself the FREEDOM OF AWARENESS.

 

 

 

Awareness creates a space for EMPOWERED CHOICE.

 

And making choices that create more stability & balance in your body will make life easier.

WHAT DOES STABILITY FEEL LIKE IN LIFE & IN THE BODY?

 

When you feel stable in your life, it is easier to:

Communicate your needs & set healthy boundariesHave the courage to stay kind in the face of adversityAttract & manifest the life you desire & requireHave the confidence to share your creativity with the worldReduce the frequency & intensity of negative feelingsFeel better through the curve balls of life

 

 

So, HOW DO YOU CREATE MORE STABILITY?

 

The #1 Way to create more stability is to bring awareness to your body.

Why?

Because your body is your transportation vehicle on this planet (& in this lifetime).

 

 

 

Your body has to process every experience, thought, emotion, sight, sound, smell & taste. Your body is amazing. The body is always absorbing & storing information, & at the same time, cleansing & adapting. It is working 24/7 to try to find homeostasis.

 

But, too often, you are driving your body-vehicle without an awareness of the maintenance it needs. And the body can only handle so much before it begins to wobble, becomes unstable & falls out of balance.

 

 

SIMPLE EXERCISES TO IMPROVE YOUR STABILITY

Here are 2 simple tricks to connect with your body on a daily basis, with the intention of creating more stability:

 

 

 

 

 

1. Become Friends with Your Feet.

Your feet are your – most often – connection with the ground. Gravity keeps us from floating up into the sky, but being aware of & taking care of your feet will keep you connected to an Earth-like energy.

Practice: 

*Take 1 minute to feel your bare feet on different textures like carpet, cement, sand, grass, etc.

*Before going to bed, take 2 minutes to clean your feet. Wash away the journey of the day. Then rub oil (lavender is a personal fav) on each foot & give yourself a foot massage.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Practice intentional breathing

In order to get yourself out of sympathetic dominance & remind your body you are okay. If you’d like guidance, follow along with this 5 minute practice. 

 

 

 

 

There are a lot of things in life you cannot control.

 

But who you choose to be & how you choose to show up, no matter what happens to you, is very much in your control. And cultivating more stability for yourself will make showing up with confidence so much easier.

 

Practice being in the driver’s seat of your life, instead of just a passenger.
