Are you fresh out of inspiration for what’s next for you? Perhaps you seem unable to come up with any new ideas or solutions to a situation you face? 

What if I told you that it’s stress and the state of your nervous system which is creating tunnel vision, or a complete inability to move into action?

A regulated nervous system provides the space to contemplate what’s next and tap into new ideas.

In episode 23, I provide an overview of the nervous system states and how they create tunnel vision or inaction. I discuss why our ability to move between these states provides a fertile environment for change. 

If you feel stuck around what’s next in life, join me to discover the role stress has in where you are today.
