Have you ever noticed your heart rate rising in the middle of a conversation with a co-worker, boss, or family member? We hear people saying things like , "It just made my blood boil!"
What is it triggering in you?
How can you be less reactive and more responsive?
I have a theory about triggers and I think it'll actually make you like them more. Your triggers are the very thing that get you to pay attention. So the problem is not really the trigger, but rather your response to the trigger. The trigger itself is your finger-snap to wake you up from living in status quo (zzzz...boring). The stimulus of getting triggered actually provides you with great opportunity.
