Meet: Strong thoughts, emotions, and urges to act by noticing them as they show up in your mind and body.

Engage: in awareness by turning to face, feel and investigate whatever is being triggered.

Allow: yourself to gently let the strong feelings, the powerful thought, and the compulsion to act come up…and then let them go.

Notice:  How you feel when you pause to connect with yourself before acting out.
