5 Somatic Practices to Regulate Your Nervous System
The basic exercise
The Basic Exercise, modified from Stanley Rosenberg’s original method, is a simple and quick routine that serves as an effective nervous system reset. Make it a part of your morning routine for its rejuvenating effects, but it’s also perfect for a quick reset anytime during the day or as a relaxing practice before sleep.
Two-step parasympathetic activation
This is a gentle approach to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is like flipping the switch on your body’s innate anti-anxiety response. By doing this, you’re engaging in a self-care practice that soothes and calms your mind and body, providing a natural and soothing relief from stress and anxiety.
A grounding exercise recommended by Peter Levine, designed to help you connect with your body as a safe and comforting container. This gentle practice can be a powerful tool for self-awareness and emotional regulation, helping you to feel more at peace in your own body.
Lying upside down pushing feet against the wall
Lying upside down with your feet against the wall is a straightforward and potent method that activates deep proprioceptive stimulation. It creates a sense of safety in the nervous system and helps calming sensory overload.
The physiological sigh can lower anxiety and stress right away. A study published in 2023 by the Stanford Center on Stress showed that doing this practice for five minutes daily led to significantly more positive feelings throughout the day after just ten days. It also decreased rates of breathing at rest, which is a sign of overall body calmness. It is more effective than meditation in regulating anxiety in real-time.
