Regulating Our Response to Triggers

Updated: Jan 20

Who’s been getting hit hard by triggers lately? 💥

Many are experiencing this in the current moment. If you find this happening to you, take a moment to step back from the situation and breathe before reacting.


One of the most challenging AND most beneficial things we can do when feeling triggered is to delay taking action.


This allows us time to re-center ourselves and bring our nervous system back into balance before deciding on a response — instead of automatically reacting to the stimulus in front of us.

When your body has regulated itself and your emotional space is not as heightened, things will appear much clearer.


The consistent practice of delaying our response to triggers and waiting to make decisions from a clear space changes everything.


Who has tried this before? I would love to hear your experiences from using this or similar strategies when feeling triggered or emotionally heightened.
