How to Identify And Manage Your Emotional Triggers with Yoga and Ayurveda


There are some points in our lives when we have to face some situations which might not be as favorable as we expected.  In those situations everyone tends to respond in a different manner. For example, a group of students going on a college trip might have some individuals who do not enjoy adventurous gliding in the hills, whereas others may just love it. When this happens one might wonder why this difference is there? The answer to this question is everyone has different emotional triggers in their lives. So, today we are going to discuss the emotional triggers and how we identify them.


To lead a healthy life it is not just the physical body that is to be taken care of, rather a peaceful mind is also necessary. Sometimes there are some factors present in our surroundings which could make us feel sad, fearful or angry which is just a normal response of our body and a normal thing. But what if there are no such external stimuli but still we have these emotions, then it could be because of an emotional trigger. An emotional trigger could be anything like a memory in your subconscious mind, item, subject, word that erupts a very strong negative feeling regardless of your present situation.



Types of emotional triggers

  1. Anxiety: In this type of emotional trigger as the name suggests there are emotions like uneasiness, anxiety, nervousness, palpitation without any particular reason.
  2. Anger: This is an emotional trigger which is oftenly encountered by many people. In this, there is a loss of self control and affected individuals may show signs of fast, short breathing, redness of face (flush of blood), clutching of hands etc.
  3. Traumatic: This type of emotional trigger is hard to deal with, as the history of the affected person is related to physical pain and fear. This is usually seen with the behavior of withdrawal from the situations that could trigger the eruption of memory of their accident. For example, a patient who has fully recovered after a mishap might choose not to drive for years just because the thought of driving triggers his mind and refreshes his memory of the accident.
  4. Relationship: When someone is triggered by a relationship that could be between anybody like a couple, son and a father etc. For example, you are using your social media account and you see a couple’s photo who are your friend’s friend and you feel sad or depressed all of sudden. It means here your emotional trigger is a relationship.

How to identify your emotional triggers?

Now that we have learnt about some common emotional triggers, it’s time to discover methods to identify them. This is necessary to have a sound and a happy mind. This process requires self-introspection. It is not a single day process, it needs time as there are certain steps to be followed in doing so like:

  1. Identifying the ways you respond in a situation where you are overwhelmed by emotions such as anger, envy, stress. With these you are also required to see for any physical sign like restlessness in legs, increased heart rate. Noticing all these changes will help you to know when, where and to which stimulus you responded like this.
  2. Now, you have taken a note of the responses and are ready for the analysis. Try to recall what was your state of mind before the incident and what exactly made you react this way.
  3. Repeat this practice as this is not done in one go. You would need to see for the points which are triggering your emotions.
  4. Take help from your friends, family members, relatives who are close to you. When we are into something, say a part of a game, there is always a referee present there to supervise the foul play. Just like that in these situations our closed ones are the one who could judge our responses better.
