Can’t avoid Triggers

My counselor commented I was a field filled with trigger land mines.  Can’t avoid hitting them when they are everywhere.  I appreciate this morning reminder on Facebook.

Because we often cannot avoid triggers, it is important to learn ways of coping with triggers. Effective, healthy coping strategies for lessening the impact of triggers include:

Mindfulness
Relaxation
Self-soothing
Grounding
Expressive writing
Social support
Deep breathing
