When you don’t realize that you’re frustrated until after you’re yelling at your entire family…
When you don’t notice you have to pee until it’s an emergency…
When you don’t catch that you’ve been thirsty for hours…
It’s embarrassing, frustrating, or both when you don’t feel like you’re in control of your own body. Struggling with your interoception is an everyday occurrence for people with ADHD.
How can you strengthen your awareness and tune into your body’s cues so that you feel more sturdy, stable, and present throughout your day?
Today’s guests and friends, Elizabeth Brink and Anna Lopez share how you can begin to listen to your body and feel connected to your brain, body, and feelings.
Anna Lopez is a neurodivergent, single, mom of two boys living in Austin, TX. She’s a psychotherapist, psychiatric PA, and neurodivergent coach, who loves helping people learn about their brain and lift the shame of the way it shapes how they show up in the world.
Elizabeth Brink is a trauma-informed, body-based coach for neurodivergent people. Elizabeth believes the wisdom of the body offers a unique shortcut to fully embracing the self, which is critical for lasting change.
We dive into polyvagal theory, somatics, and interoception, to link the science and the art of listening to yourself and building your self-trust.
