In this episode, Dr. Alex shares her personal experience of dealing with a frozen well and being without water while her husband is out of town. She reflects on how she has learned to manage stress and regulate her emotions through a recent HeartMath certification in clinical stress, anxiety, and emotional regulation. We dive into the possibility of resetting our stress baseline and capacity for dealing with day to day life well.
