    Great post! I’m always looking for concrete ways to practice more. I wanted to say one thing in defense of the reptilian brain. In some schools of zen they talk about it as what I would call the body brain. That at times it’s our more developed brain that creates delusion. Or the stories we tell ourselves about why we do or don’t like this person, action or situation and that it’s not always so helpful. So we tap into the body brain as a way to get grounded because the body is always in the present. I think it’s one of the reasons why yoga can be a de-stressor. But of course it’s all complicated and the brain works together in many different ways :-) . Thank you!

    Wow, love these ideas Stacy! I feel like a am so out of touch with myself, my kids, my intentions and the world around me when I am in the midst of our busy daily lives. I’m going to read more about your mindfulness bell and definitely work on markers, as well. Thank you!

    I really appreciate this! I think I’ll try the soft-belly and see if it can help me snap out of my reacting rather than respectful responding. Thanks so much for these mindful ideas.

    Oh I am so in reptilian brain mode right now and definitely need to practice finding ways to shift awareness. Soft belly and markers seem like just the right places for me to start. Thanks so much for this post — it feels like a gift! :)

    This is wonderful Stacy, and I need this right now with so much happening around me. I know the reptilian brain you speak of!! It reminds me of what I read in Jill Bolte Taylor’s book, My Stroke of Insight. She said that we have 90 seconds once that chemical of reactivity is released into our primitive, reactive brain, and what we do with that ninety seconds until rationality and the forebrain functions return is what we have to work on to oppose those reactive pathways. What you have here is exactly what is needed…and as soon as I get that bell out of storage, I am going to put is somewhere for all of us!! Thank you friend!!

    Hi, Stacy, thank you for this. I love it. Your authenticity and honesty is always so beautiful. I’ve stumbled across the soft belly approach on my own it seems. I notice when my womb (or belly) contracts. I know this is a moment during which I’m disconnecting and becoming incredibly stressed (usually in situations with my daughter, now two-and-a-half). I understand, intuitively, that returning to a softer space helps me. I love the bell idea. I’m encouraged to find a bell and use it here at home with my family. Much love to you.
