Reacting to Emotional Triggers

Emotions are often triggered unexpectedly. What happens in the next few seconds following a trigger determines the difference between whether an individual will react or respond. A reaction typically provokes more reactions that seem to have no end. On the other hand, a response typically provokes discussion that can lead to resolution. The more reacting we do, the less empowered we might become.

Stress in the workplace and at home is a reality for many first responders. Left unchecked it could impact your health in negative ways.  Stressors have a major influence upon mood, our sense of well-being, behavior, and health. (Schneiderman, Ironson, Siegel. 2005)

Taking a few minutes each day for yourself can have a great impact on your overall health and wellbeing.

Meditation may actually help to reduce stress, improve focus, mood and even sleep.
