Triggers. We’ve all got em. Sometimes we are triggered by what someone else says or does, and more often than not, we get triggered as a result of our own thoughts or behaviors. De and Jackie talk about being triggered and what is actually happening in our brains and in our bodies in those triggering moments. They share an alliteration to help us relieve the trigger and return to a responsive – as opposed to reactive – frame of mind.
