A Reset is a resource designed to help you regulate your nervous system. Resets can be a key tool in stressful situations. They can help to anchor your nervous system in a safe state, and provide you with cues of safety and security, enabling you to move through the states of your nervous system. Some resets are exercises or activities you can do to recharge your ability to navigate the world. Others can enable participants to be more mindful of their surroundings. All resets provide the opportunity to become more aware of where their nervous system is and how to navigate it. These can help you reduce anxiety, stress, and fear. Resets are one of the many tools we can add to our toolbelt to navigate the stressful world in a meaningful way.

How can picture of other people help regulate your nervous system?

People co-regulate with one another, and studies have shown that looking at pictures of healthy, loving relationships and smiling, and happy people, can help the nervous system to regulate. Looking at pictures of happy, smiling people can help to activate the pleasure centers of the brain, increasing your sense of security and safety. Additionally, seeing the faces of others can help our nervous systems to feel more connected.
