Simple Ways To Come Back To Yourself

With so much going on in the world at the moment, it’s important to realise that you are more resilient than you might give yourself credit for. One of the ways we can resource ourselves and soothe any hypervigilance in our nervous system is through safe touch of the facial muscles, through gentle massage and mobilization.

These muscles of the face- the forehead, around the eyes, and cheeks- are key players when it comes to activating the social engagement system and ventral vagal activation and can help signal the rest of the body that it is safe to let go for a bit.

It’s a simple way of coming back to yourself, of extending nurturing and care, and of curating moments of pleasure and joy for us to develop a foothold in.

Onwards.

❤️ Jane
