How do you regulate your nervous system when things feel out of control?
You might have heard about the usual things like getting enough sleep, meditating, or going for a walk.
❓But what if you can’t sleep? What if it’s the middle of the workday and you can’t get up and go for a walk? Or if you’re in back-to-back meetings?
That’s where micro-practices come in.
I had the pleasure of speaking about this with Alison Kole MD on her podcast, “Sleep is My Waking Passion.”
Dr. Kole is a fellowship-trained and Board Certified Sleep Medicine specialist, and chronic insomniac turned sleep biohacker, who’s on a mission to empower people to improve their sleep naturally.
On this episode of Dr. Kole’s podcast, we talked about:
✓ The stress response, sleep, and mental health
✓ The difference between “micro” and “macro” practices
✓ Four categories of micro-practices to try out
So if you’re curious about super simple ways to hack your nervous system, give the episode a listen.
To your wellbeing,
