As human beings, we are born with a nervous system that is not completely formed, patterned or ‘wired’, like it is for many other animals. We must learn how to walk, talk, perform multiple activities and interact with other human beings, in our environment.
In order to cope with the demands of life, we learn many skills, embody certain posture, a unique way to move and carry ourselves in walking, sitting, standing, listening to others. We develop patterns of thinking and feeling that through repetition become deeply grooved in our brains. We experience traumatic events, injuries, challenges and success.
Over time our breathing gets shallower, our jaws tighten and our eyes learn to quickly jump from screen to screen. As we succeed at multitasking we become less able to be present to the single task at hand. Our internal, proactive state of mind, body and spirit turns into reactive, anxiety-driven fast responses to external pressure. As we reduce the infinite potential we had at birth to a habitual set of choices and patterns, we experience the symptoms of imbalance: pain, illness, lack of vitality, attention deficit, disconnect with our passion, anxiety, depression. Our performance and sleep quality diminish, we gain weight and lose muscle mass. It’s a domino effect.
