Triggered: Can we play with that?
Amanda Chavez Plays with Vulnerability Valley: Use HALTS
Show Notes

Ask yourself: "Do I know how to keep myself from being emotionally hijacked...and do I know why that might be valuable to me at all?" The body holds stories folks - patterned ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. Join Houston Realtor Amanda Chavez to explore road rage & vulnerability, coming away with a funny-scary road rage story AND:  

  • The tool HALTS: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired, Sad-Sick-unSaturated; 
  • Why utilizing HALTS is beneficial to diminish the chance for emotional hijacking; and,
  • The importance of knowing your "why" - motivating you to take care of your vulnerable self, before it leaves you open to an emotional hijacking.

Whether it's you who struggles with these moments as a trigger or someone you know - we can all use tools to recondition cultural beliefs that aren't realistic or helpful to our personal experience as a human being. It starts with you, so have a journal on hand or a good friend to dialogue with what comes up for you in this episode. And if you can't play with this today? That's okay too. Stay curious. We'll see you later, or in the next episode friend. 🌿
