Pause when provoked.
—Calm App Reflection
What would be possible if you resisted the urge to judge and criticize others?
Where could an intentional pause allow you to pivot in a better direction when you are hooked by what others say and do?
Unfortunately, the time between stimulus and response seems to keep getting shorter and shorter.
Our urgent need to get things done, multitask, and speed though the unsavory parts of our lives often has us shoot before we aim.
Who are the people in your life that push your buttons and provoke you?
What are some frequent topics or events that trigger heated emotions and upsets?
What approaches can you take to mindfully pause before your amygdala is hijacked?
