15 Somatic Practices for Stress and Anxiety Relief

Welcome to the latest episode of the Inscape Quest podcast show. Your host, Trudi Howley, guides listeners through a special micro session on managing stress and anxiety using somatic practices. Trudi shares a remarkable list of 15 quick interventions aimed at increasing your tolerance for stress and anxiety, providing moments of calm and rest throughout your day.

The episode introduces the concept of somatic practices, focusing on body-based techniques aimed at restoring balance and calm, even in moments of stress or anxiety. These ranged from deep breathing techniques, the simple act of orienting to your physical sensations throughout the day, to more elaborate strategies like the Tapas Acupressure Technique, imagery and tapping.

Trudi emphasizes these practices, which take just a couple of minutes each, are ideal for incorporating into your daily routine, breaking the cycle of anxious thinking and helping listeners to foster a sense of calm and centeredness. It's about becoming familiar with your body, understanding the state of rest, and then adjusting to reduce states of fight or flight.

Each of these practices serves as a means for self-regulation, stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, thereby increasing sensory awareness in the body. The strategies shared are designed to be highly accessible and easily practiceable for anyone in need of stress and anxiety relief.
