EP:35 Whether we're sensory seekers or sensory avoiders, we always have those days when we're triggered by noise in all forms-- be it from crying babies, whining and bickering toddlers, fighting siblings, or even just from playing kids while in the bathtub. Does that make us broken? Does that make us bad parents?
Definitely not! There are noises that we just can't tolerate!!! That's just how our brain is wired and programmed.
And until we have awareness on what's going on inside, we will never have clarity and understanding of why certain things easily trigger us.
Being mindful of how our brains tick will absolutely help us in finding the right tools for us to regulate every time we are over functioning and overstimulated.
So even when the noise is just overwhelming, we can recognize what our brains and bodies need and remind that we are in a safe space. You can give your body what it’s craving without any guilt, shame, and fear because our nervous system knows that it is safe and OK!

vor 3 Tagen

Lindsey is a an incredible wife and mamma to two amazing boys. Lindsey owns a beautiful jewelry company. The link is in stories! I've worked with Lindsay and her family for a few years now. I've worked with Lindsay regarding herself and I've supported Lindsay with her kiddos. This episode is an authentic look through the lens of what a session with one of my clients looks like. We talk through our kids different nervous systems and how sometimes their underdeveloped nervous systems is what's getting in the way of them being able to attend and focus and how to support them through it all! My hope is that this will help you and other parents relate to Lindsey’s story.
It Is Ok Not To Be Ok
24:57EP:56 It is ok for you to be an individual. It's okay to not have the same opinions. It's okay to feel things that others don’t.It's okay to be a quote sensitive human. It's okay when others tell you to get over it and are not ready, and it affected me and that's okay. All of our brains function differently. And if you're trying to model someone else or a generation or you're trying to keep up with something that was taught to you that you quote should be keeping up with but deep down you're you feel empty… Listen to that!

When Are You Fully Healed From Truama?
34:46EP:55 A question I get asked all the time… When do you know you are finally healed from trauma? The truth is… It's not about when is the healing over. It's about gaining awareness to understand that you actually do have control over how you feel in the midst of a trigger. It is the ability to say, I know that I can support myself through this. I know I have the capacity to do it. I've done it before. And I know I'm going to feel okay on the other side. And that is what it's about. The healing and work always continues. Am I more healed now than I was a year or two ago or five years ago, you bet. But I also love the person that I am here today. And I also look forward to the person I will be in a year. Like I look forward to that. And it's okay to accept it all. Healing can happen, but it does happen very slowly. And I do believe that we become wiser as we get older, we become more comfortable within our skin and more comfortable with the choices we're making and who we are and how we choose to lead our lives and not caring about what others think as much like all that happens with with time, right and experience, but also healing. So best of luck on your healing journey and know that it's okay to go slow.

How To Teach Our Kids Feelings
28:13EP:49 We can support our brain into rewiring. We can support our brain into healing. We can support our brain into gaining more fluency within each different portion of our brain. Your brain might push and resist away from saying the hard emotional things because your brains not used to it NOT because it can't. It's just that muscle has not been flexed enough. That is why it is so important to teach our children how to understand feelings, what they are and how to verbalize them. It is our responsibility as parents to teach our children this consistentely within the safely of our home so they can continue to do the same out in the world. Join me on this weeks episode of Thrive Like a Parent to learn how to teach your children feelings.
Living with Hashimoto's Autoimmune Disease
28:00EP:48 I have officially been diagnosed with Hashimotos. It's an autoimmune disease, where your thyroid can bounce into hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. It's been a hard one, it's been a real hard one to swallow. But this will now be part of my story that I share with you and hopefully share my healing journey of what this looks like and how I am stepping in to supporting myself even more. And at the end of the day. It first and foremost starts with me on apologetically, taking care of myself. So I choose to move forward with the awareness, with more knowledge, more grace, more understanding, more self love, and more healing. Because at the end of the day, health is the most important thing. Mental and physical. So take this today as a reminder to slow down. Take care of yourself.
