KEY POINTS

  • The first step to reacting appropriately to a trigger is an awareness of how you are feeling—is it a positive energy that you feel or a negative one?
  • Beware! Social media platforms are where people get the most easily triggered.
  • The way you react to triggers will depend on your level of self-awareness and how you channel your energy from that trigger.
