Heightened sensitivities can throw us into full on panic-mode when our brains sound alarm bells in response to certain stimuli.
Maybe it's a certain chemical smell. Or perhaps, a certain volume and intensity of sound that triggers your nervous system to spiral into panic.
Maybe it's a combination and each layer adds more stress and more panic to your experience.
It can be frustrating to feel so out of control, so swept about by your experience.
It can also be empowering to tend to your system in these moments. You get to be the one to guide yourself back to a place of regulation. With practice, you get to re-train your brain and teach it that it no longer needs to sound the alarm bells.
Use this video before an anticipated exposure or just after being triggered.
