The medical headlines in my inbox this morning are all about Dopamine fasting—giving yourself a break from the constant stimulation that comprises our jobs and many recreational activities. Machines were created to make life easier on us—but in my experience they often contribute to our feeling more overwhelmed and frustrated.
While taking a significant amount of time away from devices is supportive, it's not always possible. It can also be effective to make sure you are taking time to reset throughout each day. This can support the nervous system to come back to balance periodically, offering you energy and availability for each activity in your day.
At the Breema Center and Breema Clinic in Oakland, CA and Hummingbird Valley Retreat Center in Santa Cruz, CA, we offer many ways for you to connect to yourself (instead of the machines!). Personal Breema sessions allow time to relax, receive and reset. Self-Breema helps you access the Breema atmosphere at home, in the office, or even while waiting in line at the grocery store. And our workshops offer a deeper experience of how you can bring the nurturing, supportive atmosphere of Breema and the Nine Principles of Harmony into all aspects of your life.
On January 27th, 10am-1pm, we have a special topic workshop on Finding Your Inner Compass: Reclaiming Your Attention. Join Jon Schreiber DC, Alexandra Johnson MD, and Angela Porter, LMFT, and learn simple, practical ways to reclaim your attention and your life.
