Know your Survival System
Our arousal system activates for pro-action or defence and discharges to calm down and reconnect safely. We have these automatic responses for survival. Adrenalin and Cortisol are arousal hormones and also Oxytocin which drives us to connect with friends and loved ones. So arousal states are not bad but rather are pushing us look after ourselves.
Resilience to stress comes from knowing our arousal capacity is healthy, knowing how to calm our body when aroused or immobilised and connecting with helpful, understanding people.
Breathing, Meditation and TRE all help us down-regulate.
