Somatic Guide To Overcoming Your Fawn Response In Business
As entrepreneurs, we often feel the need to please everyone around us. We want to be liked, respected, and valued. However, this desire to please can turn into a self-sabotaging pattern known as the fawn response. When we experience the fawn response, we tend to sacrifice our needs and values for the sake of others, leading to a loss of autonomy and self-worth.
In this somatic guide, we will explore the fawn response and how it can impact your success in business. We will also discuss how somatic exercises and Better You In 52 can help you overcome this pattern and cultivate a sense of self-worth and empowerment.
Understanding the Fawn Response
The fawn response is an instinctual response to perceived danger or threat, where an individual attempts to please or appease the source of danger in order to avoid harm. This response is often rooted in childhood experiences where the individual learned that pleasing others was necessary for survival.
In business, the fawn response can manifest as a reluctance to set boundaries or speak up for oneself. This can lead to overworking, burnout, and a lack of fulfillment in your career. It can also lead to a lack of confidence in decision-making, as you may constantly seek validation and approval from others.
Somatic Exercises for Overcoming the Fawn Response
Somatic exercises can help you connect with your body and release tension and stress that may be contributing to the fawn response.
Here are a few exercises to try:
Grounding exercises: Take a few deep breaths and focus on the sensation of your feet on the ground. Visualize roots growing from your feet and connecting you to the earth. This exercise can help you feel more grounded and present at the moment, allowing you to set boundaries and make decisions from a place of empowerment.
Body scanning: Close your eyes and scan your body from head to toe, noticing any areas of tension or discomfort. Take a few deep breaths and imagine sending love and healing to those areas. This exercise can help you connect with your body and release any physical tension that may be contributing to the fawn response.
Mirror work: Stand in front of a mirror and look into your own eyes. Say positive affirmations to yourself, such as "I am worthy and deserving of respect." This exercise can help you cultivate a sense of self-worth and empowerment, allowing you to set boundaries and prioritize your own needs.
