Tired and Overwhelmed

In this meditation, we'll practice calming down our nervous system.

Hey, this is going to be a three

minute meditation to help you reset

when you're feeling overwhelmed.

Let's start by finding

a comfortable posture.

And if it feels okay to do

so, you can close your eyes.

We'll take a deep breath

together to begin.

Breathing in through the nose.

Slowly back out through the mouth.

As you settle in, you can

invite your jaw to relax.

Letting the shoulders be at ease.

And the hands and the belly.

We're going to explore three

questions to help us reset right now.

The first question is, in

what ways am I okay right now?

In what ways am I okay right now?

Just sense around you, feeling your body

on the chair, your feet on the ground.

Anything else that indicates

you're okay right now.

It's very settling for the

nervous system to feel safe.

And when we're overwhelmed, it's

often because the nervous system

is feeling a little unsafe with

how much input is coming in.

In what ways am I okay right now?

The next question is, what can I

control or influence right now?

There may be a situation that

feels mostly out of your hands.

You can't impact it in the way that

maybe you want to or expected to.

But what can you do in

relationship to what's arising?

What is something that you can

influence and you can take action on?

And the last question is, in

what ways can I let be and trust?

In what ways can I let be and trust?

Let's take one closing breath together.

In through the nose.

Out through the mouth.

And when you're ready,

you can open your eyes.

Thank you for your practice.

Hope this helps you feel a

little bit more grounded and able

to move into the next moment.

Talk to you soon and take care.
