Calming Activities to Increase States of Well-being

Updated: May 17

Many of you have worked to begin understanding the role of the nervous system in feeling safe and well. If you are interested in increasing cues of calm and safe in your system, the list below provides some quality resources you may want to explore.


I would encourage you to be open to trying new things, yet responsive to what your system is telling you. In other words, challenge yourself to explore new resources, but listen if your system says, ‘no thanks,’ or ‘yuck.’ There are many options; no need to force fit anything.


I will be adding to the list a bit at a time.

If you have resources that you find helpful, please message me, and I will gladly share.


Enjoy what you enjoy. 😊
