Podcast Episode #153: Why We Get Triggered and What We Can Do About It with K. Domiana Ndour

Have you recently had a day where just one too many things piled up, and before you know it, you feel triggered and just explode? Yep. Been there too. Why do we get triggered sometimes? Well, it may be because so many days we:

wake up to the sound of one of our kids crying,

have gotten hit by an airborne toy thrown in a fit of emotion by one of our kids,

walk into a trashed living room after we’ve asked for it to be cleaned a dozen times, or

have a child attached to us and touching us ALL. DAY. LONG.

The truth is that at some point we all get triggered, we snap, and then we need a reset- something to help us come back down to our normal, calm state.

In this podcast episode, we are excited to welcome K. Domiana Ndour. She’s a retired Professional Basketball Player turned two-time Bestselling Author, Somatic Healer, Coach, International Speaker, Certified Yoga Instructor, Babywearing Educator, wife, and mom.

We have a real conversation about the stressors of everyday life as a mom,  how “mom rage” is real, and what you can do to not only help you recognize your triggers, but how you can bring yourself back from a place where it feel like everything (including your energy) is just being sucked out.
