How To Journal Through Your Triggers And Get Out Of Your Own Way

So much of who you are and what you do takes place in your subconscious awareness. 

And there's a lot of value in that... 

When you can do a big chunk of stuff without having to think or choose consciously, you free up a ton of bandwidth and creative energy. 

But sometimes, automatic doesn't serve you. 

Instead, your autopilot reactions leave you feeling frustrated, irritated, angry, or embarrassed. 

Enter your triggers! 

Those external factors that spark an instinctive reaction inside of you that doesn't draw out your best self.

In this week's episode, I share how you can use your journal to identify these triggers - and transform your instinctive responses into reactions that serve.  

Check out this episode to hear about: 

  • How to use your journal to bring triggers to conscious awareness
  • The power of detailed reflections
  • The importance of being brutally honest with yourself
  • Why transformation is in the detail
  • How to turn your reactions into triggers into moments that empower you
  • Why childhood holds the clues to our current day triggered responses
  • And more!

As always, here's a journaling prompt, which you can use to put this theory into practice. Download HERE
