We all have triggers that set us off. Maybe it’s too much traffic or that certain someone who gets under your skin. To be human means sometimes getting caught by life’s irritations and disappointments.
But when that occasional reaction becomes a routine inner state of irritability, anger, anxiety, stress or sadness, you’re in trouble.
You either manage your triggers or your triggers manage you. Unfortunately, just understanding this doesn’t tell you how to change it. This workshop will delve into the reasons we get triggered and how to change our thinking and responses so that we can take back our power.
Through presentation, discussion, and exercises, we will work together to help you find strategies and solutions to help make the shift from your triggered self to your bigger self for a more effective and enjoyable life.
