Nervous system in action: my puppy learns to swim
Lying in the lake as the forest fire smoke surrounds me. A moment of grief.

My go-to when I'm in the grip of horror.
Do you ever have moments when you feel like your insides are on fire? Water is the opposite of fire. I find using water as a resource soothes my body, mind, and brings me back down to feeling contained and grounded.
