In this module of the course, we explore anatomy and neurology at an introductory level to give us the vocabulary and theory to go deeper into how our brains and bodies work together and impact our relationships to ourselves and others.
The biggest things we have control over are how we act in and react to situations
We can’t control how other people are going to act or react, so it’s important that we focus on ourselves and our ability to navigate situations
When can we lose control?
People can lose control when they’re upset, excited, overwhelmed, happy, sad, pressured, triggered, overstimulated, and more
Losing control can look differently for different people, and needs to be managed differently depending on the person as well
There are also times when people lose control that have nothing to do with their emotions. When someone’s grounded, when someone’s in detention, and when someone’s in a meeting are all examples of when people don’t have control over their surroundings, actions, and or behaviors
Losing control can also be less obvious than we think! When one of our friends is begging us to do something, we might not have as much control as we think in the situation.
