Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs is a local group, comprised of Alliance of Therapy Dogs, our national organization, members. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization that services the DFW area with therapy dogs. Therapy comes in many different forms, for many different people, for many different reasons. Therapy dogs provide a type of therapy that is different than almost anything else. They provide a sense of comfort, peace, patience, ease, love, and provide all of this…especially, during times of crisis.
From depleted to Replenished! 💫
When you are coming from a place of depleted, exhausted, overwhelmed, high stress...think about rebalancing your nervous system. It is not in your best interest to stay in the fight/flight mode (sympathetic nervous system) for long periods of time. This depletes you and your body of energy, the ability to absorb vital nutrients, increases inflammation and is horrible on your mood. 🥴
We rarely learn about how to actively engage our rest/digest mode (parasympathetic nervous system). This list below is a great place to start! This is our calm mode and the place where we can support our physical and mental health and make good decisions for ourselves or families.
Yes, stress is a normal part of life and some seasons seem to be full of it. I would guess you can easily slip into this mode! So we must actively remind ourselves the importance of slowing down, healing, connecting and resting. This is probably where you will find your best self 😊 #mentalhealth #therapy #replenish #nervoussystem #healing #empowerment #strongwomen #boundaries #healthjourney #mindbodysoul
I know the year is almost over but if you still have goals on the list - keep going! You don't have to wait until January 1 to start feeling your best- you deserve to feel it now. So make the appointment, schedule the workout, have the talk, get the date on the calendar...whatever it is...keep blooming🌺
You need a plan! If your holidays don't look like a Hallmark movie, you need a family plan! How long are you planning to be there? How will you manage visiting numerous celebrations? If there are already family tensions, how can you prepare now? If you are dealing with an ex, do you have a plan for yourself? Do your kids know what to do if they get overwhelmed? Will your partner catch the "it's time to go look" or do you need a more distinct exit strategy? If this is the first holiday season after a loss, you need a plan. 🙏🏻 Just a friendly reminder to have a talk ahead of the day. Your loved ones will thank you later for anticipating any pitfalls. Holidays are fun and can be stressful, have that family meeting soon!🍁
