Episode 83: Polyvagal Theory and Self-Belonging

In this week’s episode, I explain a bit about our Polyvagal Theory, our autonomic nervous system, and self-belonging. I share a personal story, discuss how important it is to understand our nervous system so we can have more control over how we react when it feels threatened. I also share some techniques I have used to overcome self-doubt and build my sense of self-belonging. Here are the links to resources mentioned in the episode:
