The Triangle of Self Awareness.

#1. Take a moment to reflect on where you are now.

#2. How are you feeling?

#3. Do you notice any signs of anxiety? They may be physical or biological such as stomach-ache or headaches.

#4. Take a moment to recognised how you might move away from these uncomfortable feelings of anxiety.

What have you done to defend, detach, distract yourself?

#5. Recognise, acknowledge and take charge of what is happening.

#6. Use the Triangle of Person to reflect on when these patterns are showing up.
