Are You Getting Triggered?

Roller CoasterAre You Getting Triggered? Are you searching for joy??

It has been a crazy roller coaster ride the last couple of weeks— for everyone. Lots of questions and emotions are jumping around inside of all of us. No matter who we wanted to win the election and how we feel about the results. Now on top of that, we have the holidays when lots of old family issues can get fired up.

You may be experiencing topsy-turvy emotions

You might be feeling:

  • Anxious
  • Distress
  • Sadness
  • Uneasiness
  • Grief
  • Worry
  • Unhappiness
  • Fear
  • Frustration
  • Anger

These emotions can trigger feelings of overwhelm for your body. Your body responds to feeling out of balance and ungrounded by creating symptoms.

What are your symptoms?

Have you been noticing shortness of breath, head pressure, loss of equilibrium, erratic sleep? How about increased sensitivity to others’ comments and opinions or close to tears? Or maybe you’re having indigestion, sadness, overall tiredness or just feeling on edge?

Your body is trying to get your attention!

If any of those symptoms are present, your body is trying to get your attention. It wants to be grounded, centered, and in a place of easiness. Are you ready to feel all that AND have your body bubble up with joy and happiness? It is possible even in the midst of whatever is creating your topsy-turvy roller coaster ride. The stuff that is triggering your upset may not go away, but your body can be a lot happier!
