Nervous System ( Tension, Stress and Anxiety) πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

We can learn so much from pets about how to chill, enjoy and relax

During this Holiday season we all may need that extra little helping hand to calm and relax ourselves into some self care. This may not be possible in the hustle and bustle of chaos we often experience. There are some links to sleep and meditation music to assist with relaxation. (Hint: This will also assist with healing, inner-child work, triggers, harsh energy, shadow work etc. And quite possibly some health concerns as well, but I’m not a medical professional.)

What is the Vagus Nerve? The vagus nerve, also known as the vagal nerves, are the main nerves of your parasympathetic nervous system. This system controls specific body functions such as your digestion, heart rate and immune system. These functions are involuntary, meaning you can’t consciously control them.

What is the parasympathetic nervous system? Your parasympathetic nervous system is a network of nerves that relaxes your body after periods of stress or danger. It also helps run life-sustaining processes, like digestion, during times when you feel safe and relaxed.

It is quite an important part of our nervous system for relaxation and calming. Stress, tension, anxiety and I even add in the fight or flight physical reactions. Energetically a subtly harsh environment can cause tension in the body we may not be aware of.

Vagus nerve music has been my go to music for quite some time now. I notice a random times my body is holding tension for almost no reason. I say almost, because there has to be a cause somewhere to create this effect. Not being present could be the cause, watching TV, even as I am writing this I have found some tension in my shoulders. There is no immediate threat, it’s a strange observation indeed. I do feel a bit of urgency to go out and mail some packages, cards. Create some art, I have a list of possibilities for today, and I’m curious what will be accomplished.


Activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System to Decrease Anxiety. When the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, it produces a calm and relaxed feeling in the mind and body. People can learn to trigger their parasympathetic nervous system to immediately reduce their sense of anxiety and stress.There are many ways to practice using your parasympathetic nervous system. These includeΒ mild exercise, meditation, yoga, deep breathing from your diaphragm, even nature walks. More extreme some have been using ice baths. For some people, traditional meditation isn’t their thing. It’s about finding your body’s way of meditating, what helps you to decompress.


Here is one to listen while you sleep. We can’t always find time during the day. I find setting an intention before sleep is a great way to get things done while sleeping. (Try it, you may be surprised when you wake up refreshed.) “I will sleep 6-8 hours and wake up refreshed” or “I will wake up refreshed so the universe can show me how great life can be”

In times of stress or chaos I do hope you remember your parasympathetic nervous system and the tips in this article for yourself and others. Happy Calm Relaxing Holidays!
