This very simple exercise can help send calming safety signals to your brain and to your nervous system.

If you have a history of adversity, you may find yourself on high alert throughout your day, as if your body is still expecting the next bad thing to happen.

Its common for those with a history of trauma to live life as if every moment is an emergency. This can lead to holding neuromuscular tension in your body. 

Often this tension lodges in the largest muscle of the body, the psoas muscle. It wraps around your pelvis from your lower back forward to the lower part of your pelvis, and down your inner thighs.

The following exercise can help the brain to relax and feel more centered and grounded, which will help this major fight-flight-freeze muscle to relax. Practicing this exercise will help you dampen your stress-threat response. 

(This exercise was inspired by the work of trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem.)
