Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of being human and can even be helpful. A little bit of anxiety can energize the body to take action towards the demand at hand. While every person experiences anxiety, too much anxiety may increase the distress in one’s life. Although it is not possible to get rid of anxiety, it is possible to learn how to manage anxiety to live well through the normal overwhelming experiences in life.
Nikkol Adams, MA, RCC will explore the practical and accessible strategies by using your body as a resource for addressing the physical sensations of anxiety.
Together we will explore:
- Anxiety and its biological purpose
- The role of the autonomic nervous system
- Body-oriented regulation strategies
- When additional support is required
This presentation is designed for all individuals of all ages who are wanting to gain insight and knowledge towards understanding anxiety in their body while building a relationship to their anxious experiences through regulating strategies.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
