"Trace It makes me calmer, it feels like it helps my brain to switch to calm when dealing with stress. For example, I had a student upset on the phone and I was not having the best day myself. However, after tracing, I went calm and able to suspend my own feelings" Anna Tarraran, Teacher, Queensland VET sector, Australia."The most valuable thing I learnt was recognising that my hair pulling was my way of dealing with stress - my amygdala would go into fight or flight mode and I would pull at my hair. Recognising my hair pulling as a 'Miggi moment' helped me re-direct my stress to less harmful behaviours. The tracing was invaluable and if I didn't have access to pencil and paper I would trace the seams in my clothes. Within four weeks my hair pulling had stopped. I now rarely go to pull my hair and when I do I can say to myself 'Oh this is a Miggi Moment' take a few deep breaths and that's it. Thank you Selena for never giving up on unravelling the mysteries of our brain and providing user friendly strategies to help eliminate harmful behaviours. I'm awaiting you next book with much anticipation. Therese Groen, speech pathologist, Perth, Western Australia.Great book with practical tips for taming everyday stress! A well-written, easy to read book full of practical advice. The idea of having a 'MiGGi moment' - and being able to manage them - has had a significant impact on my work and home life. The tracing exercises really work! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get the upper hand on managing their stress. By Amazon Customer.
