It Starts With Movement: How To Integrate Primitive Reflexes with Niki McGlynn

If you feel like your brain is out to get you,

spinning stories of everything that scares and frustrates you all day long,

then you are my person. 

There are a whole bunch of strong, determined women like us

who live with constant anxiety

that makes it tough to feel calm and stay focused on what we need to do.

Here's the thing: 

Anxiety doesn't just live in your head,

It gets trapped in your body too. 

(It’s all so meta, isn’t it.)

Niki is a neurodevelopment therapist and ADHD coach, and in this episode, she shares her wisdom on how retained primitive reflexes

(certain ways you move without having to think)

play a huge role in adult anxiety and trauma.

It starts with movement.

To integrate these primitive reflexes,

Niki teaches people how to move their bodies

in fun ways that feel safe.

Remember that feeling you had running around playing tag or dancing as a kid? 

That’s exactly what you need to go back to.

Moving your body releases built-up tension and calms the nervous system. 

It's a natural reset button.

But sometimes, just knowing you should move isn't enough. 

You might feel stuck.

Wondering how you’re supposed to fit one more thing into your schedule,

of if you have to join a gym.

That's where coaching comes in.

Everything from nature walks, dancing, 

or even simple yoga routines you can do at home for free.

And you’ll choose a time that works for you to make it part of your day you

look forward to instead of dread.

We’ll find where anxiety is stuck in your body,

Learn to let it be while you wiggle and move it out,

So you feel calmer.

And when your body is calm,

your brain stops spinning stories so

you can think clearly, and problem-solve.

You’re calm, your confidence is growing, and you’re having fun again.

Are you ready?
