Here is a brief somatic practice for Type 2 – The Considerate Helper:

Step 1: Sit or lie down in a quiet, comfortable space. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.

Step 2: Place your hand on your heart. Feel the warmth of your hand on your chest and the rhythm of your heartbeat. Focus on the sensation for a minute.

Step 3: As you breathe in, say to yourself, “I am worthy of love and care.” Exhale and imagine sending love and care to yourself. Repeat this mantra for a few minutes, nurturing your own needs and self-worth.
