Emotional triggers can be ANYTHING that causes extreme emotional responses in us. Triggers keep us stuck repeating cycles of the past and gaining control over them can liberate us and help us get unstuck.
Triggers can come out of nowhere and cause us to spiral down rabbit holes. They make us feel powerless and cause us to react in a defensive way. If we can get out ahead of our triggers, some of us might be able to reduce our sensitivity to triggers and gain some emotional control over past reactive behaviors.
1) Identify what triggers you ahead of time before you are triggered and make a list
2) When triggered, reorient yourself to time and space and identify what is happening as a symptom of being triggered
3) After the trigger has occurred, talk to your Amygdala and remind yourself that even though you may consciously recognize the trigger, the fact is your body may still be reacting to stress hormones.
AWARENESS of what is happening in your body and WHY is the key!
I so hope this video helps you feel less out of control regarding triggers.
