How are Writer’s Block and Trauma Response Related?

  • Some of the ways I was tender with myself this week: Rest and sound sleep, meditation, yoga, journaling, feeling, whole foods healthy nourishment, many long lingering baths, connection and truthfulness with trusted friends and colleagues, support from mentors, and miles of walking in nature.
  • I want to acknowledge our beautiful autonomic system and how useful it was in the past and how useful it is in the present. We want the ability to shunt all energy into flight at the appropriate time, we also want the ability to shut down as needed, yet today I also recognize those reactions are misaligned with the actual experience I am having.
