Braincare, giving our brain MORE of what helps it run and LESS of what shuts it down, *has* to be a part of our daily lifestyle.
It’s the continuity of care that gives our brain a higher capacity to cope with the shit times!
Kind of like vitamins and minerals.
We don’t take them once we are already sick (ok, we secretly do, but we know it’s not gonna work). It’s taking them every day that helps us stay strong enough to maintain our health, and our brain is no different.
Brain care = A brain that can function at its best.
In 2016 I experienced my Dark Night of The Soul. My darkest, hardest ‘I’ll never survive this’ moment.
No matter what I tried, Self-caring my way out of that day would never-in-a-million-years have worked. That day required survival, and then an enormous sleep. And brain care is what followed.
Every day since that day has revolved around me caring for my needs, supporting my brain, giving myself moments of Braincare.
It’s been a slow process, but a constant one and I can proudly claim that caring for my brain, giving it more of what helps it run, and less of what shuts it down, has been the practice that has not only helped me survive but helped me thrive.
In fact? I haven’t had a meltdown since 2018! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Braincare has meant my anxiety is respected and cradled in a way that keeps it from delving into survival mode, for the most part anyway.
It has kept my executive functions (mostly) functioning at their best.
Braincare has helped me reason, evaluate, make decisions, avoid brain fog, cope with sensory overload, regulate hyperactivity and so much more.
And braincare could just help you with the same.
Have you noticed your dysregulation or that of your children?
Have a watch and learn the benefits of predictability, song, breathwork and music.
Do let me know what you think, Alli xx
