Triggered? - By Donna Leemburg

Posted on March 28, 2018 at 11:25 PM
This type of trigger is when you have a “reaction” mentally and/or physically. You may be triggered by a comment someone makes, a smell, a sound or something else. Science acknowledges that ‘triggers’ physically fire off stressors called Neurotransmitters that may cause sensations such as nausea, pain, dizziness, anger, tears, numbness and so on.

So how do you settle yourself and come down from being triggered in the moment? With practicing and applying the following suggestions you may ease and calm the mental and physical reactions you are having in your body. This process only takes a few seconds…

  • Stop and Notice – where is it located (throat, jaw, chest...) and how does this feel in your body (tight, stiff, hot...). Is the sensation in your whole body or concentrated in one area?
  • Breathe Slowly – acknowledge what you are sensing.
  • Keep Focused on the Sensation – while continuing to breath slowly.
  • Focus on your Whole Body – your entire system, everything that is held within your skin.
  • Bring your Awareness to Creating the Sensation of Melting - on slow out breaths allow your body to melt like lava into this sensation. It may feel like your shoulders slightly drop while your forehead and jaw softens. Continue to breath until you feel a softer sensation.
  • Notice – Feel calmer, softer and more relaxed. 

The point of this exercise is to notice the body and the reactions and sensations it holds. We can choose to process or to ignore. We know that emotions can cause pain in the body. Consciously taking the time to process these sensations can free up the body and mind, allowing a great sense of vitality.
