353: Unlocking the Power of Nervous System Regulation at Midlife w/ Irene Lyon

She’s Baaaacck…

Nervous system expert Irene Lyon that is.

If you have been a long-time listener of the Grace & Grit podcast, you are probably familiar with Irene Lyon. She does the MASSIVELY important work of helping people to better understand how their nervous system works AND develop skills that allow them to more easily regulate their nervous systems.

I repeatedly invite Irene back to the show because while I teach a lot of skills to my own clients to help them better manage stress, Irene teaches a layer of work that I consider to be foundational to creating any kind of meaningful behavior change.

Twice a year, Irene opens the doors to her 12-week SmartBody SmartMind program, for which I am a proud affiliate because not only has this program influenced my own life in profound ways, but I see it helping the women in my community in profound ways.

This conversation was actually an Instagram Live interview that I recently did with Irene and decided to repurpose it as a podcast episode so more people could listen to it.

In this episode, we cover…

  • How a dysregulated nervous system makes midlife so much harder than it needs to be.
  • Why the nervous system regulation is such a brilliant place to begin if you want to improve your health.
  • What the nervous system actually is and how it gets dysregulated.
  • How to find qualified nervous system professionals.
  • What makes SmartBody SmartMind different from a lot of programs out there.

… and so much more!

Say it with me “my body is NOT the problem!”

Ahhh…doesn’t it feel great to release the chains you’ve lived with for so long?

It’s true that the wellness and diet industry wants you to believe that your body is broken—that it needs to be fixed, resculpted, and forced into looking a certain way.
