Gruninger: Simple Is Your Superpower…

First published 21 December 2021

Sometimes we forget that simple is often the best way to handle things, move forward or make change.

During these next few weeks of 2021 you might find yourself feeling stressed, anxious, even sloth like with all the holiday to do.

Consider trying any of these simple practices to focus, de-stress, or down regulate your nervous system. Just 2-3 minutes a day can make a big difference….


  • Cross your arms and place your hands on your opposite shoulders. Take 5 breaths and then switch the cross of your arms. This creates a connection between your limbic brain (right hemisphere) and our more rational brain (left hemisphere) and can help with feelings of anxiety and stress.

  • Think of a time today when you had a moment of tightening and a moment of expansion. How are these the same and different?
  • Take a moment and sit and breathe. Think of a moment of delight that you had today.

  • Sit and notice what you are feeling. Can you let that feeling get big (expansive) on the inhale and then release it on the exhale. Repeat 3-5x.

  • Think of three things you are grateful for and after each one, notice where you feel it the body. This is called felt sense.
