Welcome to Nervous System with Ryan Williams
My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (NSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (NSR).
Hi, I am Ryan Williams. My life is divided into two life spans: Before Nervous System Regulation (NSR), and After Nervous System Regulation (NSR).
I hope you are safe and healthy right now. Have you been feeling Twitter burn-out, email marketing fatigue, and Zoom exhaustion? I have. I also got Covid-19 recently - that knocked me out for nearly two weeks. How are you?
I am a writer, Breathworker, teacher, social media marketer, and podcast host. I am a certified as a Breathwork teacher, Yoga Nidra teacher, and meditation instructor. You may be familiar with my first book, "The Influencer Economy," and podcast of a similar name.
After working in stand-up comedy, social media for Disney, Machinima, and many tech startups to help spread their stories, I now use my skills to further my mission: helping people learn how to heal themselves.

Why Nervous System Regulation
Have you been feeling stressed out with family, over-exhausted from the never-ending pandemic, or seeking a way to treat your insomnia? If you are curious about the type of impact nervous system regulation can have on burnout, stress, and emotional exhaustion nervous system regulation teaches us to release stress in a natural way – through exhaling.
If you are curious about the type of impact Breathwork can have on burnout, stress, and emotional exhaustion - I’ve created a Nervous System Regulation Getting Started Guide that you can read.
What does Breathwork feel like?
In Breathwork you breathe with intention, which helps to calm down the nervous system. Intentional breathing helps to relax, since many of us spend our days breathing in fear, worried about our job security, or even anxious about missing traffic lights. We are burned out, Breathwork retrains us on how to breathe in a more healthy and even fun way.
To practice Breathwork you lay on your back, breathing in a rhythmic breathing pattern. Music is playing in the background, and your goal is to relax your body. You breathe in two deep inhales. First in the belly, then in the chest. Then you exhale it all out.
It goes like this:
Inhale in the chest
Inhale in the belly
Exhale it all out
