Yes. It is common. It is a sign of a dominant sympathetic nervous system, which is how we got in this mess.

Sympathetic dominance causes impatience, irritability, always on edge. I was really bad a couple of years ago.

Now I am super calm even though I have sky high copper from a copper detox....I should be a basket case, but I’m very calm.

Here are a few things that have been helping me:

Breathing exercises. Buteyko Breathing has been the most helpful. “Slow Breathing” and Coherent breathing are also helpful.

Through your breathing, you can take control of your nervous system. You can google all of the above techniques

Meditate twice per day. Start with Concentration Meditation techniques, and then progress to mindfulness meditation, such as body scan meditation.

The EMF we are exposed to creates a lot of stress. Earthing reduces stress hormones (cortisol) during the night and has many other benefits are well. You can buy an earthing strap for sleeping for about $30.

Slow movements:
Practice doing very slow movements when washing your hair, putting away dishes, anything. The slow movements help keep your nervous system in a calm state and help keep you mindful and in the present moment, so your mind is not racing all the time.

I just recently got my Level 1 Reiki so I can self-treat.. I was calm before getting this, but it’s just one more tool.

The above are all very cheap and very effective at calming the nervous system.

Best of luck to you.
