Self-Regulation is our ability to observe and regulate our thoughts, emotions, and arousal levels in response to environmental stimuli or internal sensations.
- This is one of the most important aspects of healing as well as our ability to thrive and function in all areas of life.
- The development of self-regulation starts at birth or in utero. There are many factors that can impact self-regulation including: physical and emotional trauma, difficult birth, poor infant mother bonding, hormones, blood sugar, sensory processing difficulties, stress, thoughts, emotions, structural imbalances, diet, environmental toxins etc..
- Many experts believe that the stress response is responsible for 85% of all disease. Self-regulation skills helps to inhibit the stress response, resolve old traumas, promote relaxation, improve social engagement, and balance the autonomic nervous system.
- Excessive stress, physical and emotional trauma can create nervous system tension resulting in stagnation, fixation, and chaos,
- It disorganizes the brain and nervous system and keeps us from being in the present moment. It may result in illness, physical or emotional symptoms, anxiety, addictions, self- regulation difficulties, learning disabilities, ADHD, impulsivity, rigidity, relationship problems, and lack of self-actualization.
