With practice, we can increase our nervous system resources even in the most stressful conditions.
All it takes is conscious awareness and a commitment to wellbeing.
Sometimes it makes sense to step away and cry proactively. When we feel anxious or detached, our nervous system may be looking for a release that crying can provide. Listening to song or watching a video that makes us tearful can provide a safe pathway to emotional tears.
