Even if you’re not meeting up with family over the holidays, they may still be contact via zoom, phone and text etc. Therefore, its still important to be mindful about your triggers. This week I’m sharing a really simple 3 step process to help you deal with your holiday triggers.
- What are you feeling and is it really about the current conversation or something that reminds you of a wound in your past?
- What do you need? Maybe it’s being heard, understood or to feel safe.
- What must you do? Maybe you just need to remove yourself from the conversation by changing the subject, the company or the environment altogether!
Either way, the main focus must be on what comes alive in you when you communicate and to listen to your gut, needs and how you can restore a sense of emotional safety.
