Create a playlist that begins with music that matters / arttunes to your dorsal state. Then transition to music that matches with your sympathetic state, then transition to music that matches / attunes to your ventral state.
When activated check where you are on your autonomic ladder. Then listen to the playlist that matches your state. This can help us to feel attuned with, understood and connected.
If you are in dorsal see if you after some time can transition into some sympathetic music (lightly energised sympathetic) and then transition to ventral music
If you are in sympathetic start with that music and continue to ventral music
Curiously observe how your system shifts as you are supported to come up your autonomic ladder.

If you feel like screaming because of all whats going on in the world right now, then do it! This advise had been given to the Icelandic people, which had been criticized.

Your conncective tissue predisposes you to fight or flight/freeze responces:
Collagen fibres (collastionist) - makes your fibres dence, bouncy, tendencie to fight - you move faster, you've got more muscle tissue Elastin fibres (elastinist) - makes fibres stretchy, tendencie to flight/freeze - you move slower - you've got more fat in your tissue. In extreme cases you can have a tendencie to be hypermobile.
You can be in the middle with equal amount of collagen and elastin tissue..
Where are your ancestors from can also indicate wether you've got more collagen or elastin tissue:
Closer to the north/south poles - there's a tendencie for more elastic tissue Closer to equator - theres a tendencie for more collagen tissue
Therefore you shouldn't be too hard on yourself if you are having trouble activating your opposite fight, flight or freeze responces.
But trauma can dominate weather youve got more collagen or elastine tissue.
About gender differences: Also women in general have a tendencie to cry and men have a tendencie to get angry. Men have a tendencie to have more collastic tissue, and woman more elastic tissue.
