COVID Collapse and Election Exhaustion

by | Nov 2, 2020

Is your nervous system stuck in freeze?

COVID, elections, social unrest … tensions are high and times are hard. You’re tired of it all. You’re exhausted.

Check out this video to learn and do a simple hand movement to shift out of a freeze state. It’s easy, fun (I do have a weird definition of fun), and a powerful way to shift out of a collapsed exhaustion.

And, there’s muscle memory to it, too.

Meaning, if you do it once, your body will remember that it:

CAN shift out of stuck freeze and...

it will become EASIER the more you do it.

So… when you find yourself in a stuck mode at some point in the future:

You Can Thaw Out Your Stuck Freeze

And get back to green trees.

Next time you are exhausted, overwhelmed and want to collapse… just remember to move your hands, THEN MOVE THEM, and affect the rest of your body (and mind).

Invest 4 minutes now… save yourself HOURS (if not weeks, months, years) later.

Do you want to have a more regulated nervous system, and positively contribute to the world by being a more regulated nervous system in it?

It’s erratic, inconsistent and unpredictable. You never know when it’s going to bubble up. Or where. You cannot predict the timing or location of this fart bubble, or the course it will take to get to the surface from its sometimes trapped place in your shorts.
