Day 131: Managing the stress response

Let’s freaking go.

Lately I’ve been pushing myself to embody everydayness and I’ve had a builder by my side pushing me. This is what I want to do. My core work says that I want to embody everydayness. I want to keep up this hard work.

Here’s what I’ve been learning lately through doing this hard work. My after practice routine is to not ruminate on the work I did that day. Managing the stress response for me is to think less. When I overthink I bathe in the ‘what ifs’ of the day and overanalyze.

I’m building right now the post practice-routine of looking back at my core. Did I behave in a way that aligned with my core? This is the only post-practice routine I allow myself to think about now. I pull out my core and look at it. My measurement of success is if I’m working closer to living it out everyday.

I am becoming more of who I want to be when I look at my core. I am not giving the power to others to control my stress response. My structure and order brain needs organization or it will go anywhere. If you struggle with overthinking practice the discipline of pulling out your core and re-reading it. My core is my structure and order. Remind yourself of who you are and who you are becoming. My core is juicing me for the next practice.
