A glimmer is the exact opposite of a trigger. It is a cue, brings one back to a sense of joy or safety. This can be anything from catching a view of the skyline of your favorite city to seeing a picture of your pet.
Glimmers can be helpful in regulating our overwhelmed nervous systems by helping bring your body into the “rest state”.
How to discover your Glimmer
- Close your eyes and picture a moment of peace.
- Think of a time where you felt safe and cared for
- Think of a loved one, this could even be a pet!
