9 months in, 9 months out!!!It has been an AMAZING journey in all senses. My dearest love has come to bless our lives in so many infinite ways. Everyday I look at her and thank her from the deepest part of my soul for coming into our lives, for showing me what is like to love so deeply that you don’t understand how is it possible to love so much that you feel your heart exploding and melting all over an over again...
And of course, like any major life event and almost any new parent could tell the greatest challenges have been felt. Yet, every single of them has made me stronger and wiser. All these have presented amazing opportunities for my husband and I to look at our lives and redesign them in a way that bring us more and more fulfillment everyday!
I feel that parenthood is an amazing and beautiful paradox that in the end it’s all pure LOVE and BEAUTY even when it doesn’t feel that way!
Here’s to true love and the miracle of life!
Activities that activate the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) can help us if we are having trouble sleeping. It is extremely difficult to sleep when the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) is activated, and our Enteric Nervous System (ENS) around our gut is also affected by (SNS) stimulation. This can also make it difficult or impossible to digest food and aggravate eating disorders as well. To ‘rest and digest’ we need to turn on the (PNS) because it acts like a brake to the acceleration of the SNS. Some ways to apply ‘the brake’ include:
having a massage,
yoga, tai chi, or qi gong
spend time in nature,
slow breathing exercises like alternate nostril breathing,
playing: especially with children or animals,
listening to peaceful sounds or music before bed.
Chew your food!! Believe it or not, most of us who have a hyperactive SNS do not chew our food properly and thus tax our bodies trying to break down the larger pieces. Chew it thoroughly first!
