WHAT ARE NERVOUS SYSTEM ENERGY TYPES?
Everyone's nervous system is unique, and on NEUROFIT, this shows up in a visible way during check-ins. Nervous System Energy refers to where you check-in most often on the NEUROFIT Ring - High Energy, Grounded, or Balanced.
Grounded members check-in in the Stillness and Dorsal Vagal states more often.
To balance this, it's important to engage in daily social play and exercise. These practices will also improve creativity and focus.
These practices may feel uncomfortable at first, so honor when your nervous system feels fatigued and needs a break.
High energy members tend to report more Play and Sympathetic energy in their check-ins.
For High Energy members, it's critical to maintain a daily stillness practice. Stillness teaches the nervous system how to turn off, which improves sleep quality as well as overall recovery.
If any resistance is experienced to stillness, we recommend burning off excess energy via exercise or movement before doing so, as well as starting with shorter practices and building up over time.
Balanced members report an overall balance between high and low energy states. In this case, a simple daily embodiment practice is useful to further develop the mind-body connection and increase resilience.

The nervous system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves. The nervous system controls many of the body's involuntary activities, including movement, breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, stress response, and digestion.
