The Wellness Revolution Podcast with Amber Shaw

TWR 044: Traumas, Triggers, and Taking Back Control with Gabby Bernstein

Everyone has experienced trauma at some point in their lives. It could be a small, unconscious trauma or a big, impactful one, but either way it’s there. What we do with that old memory, and how long it takes until we realize it’s doing us no good, will depend on each person. People can go through their entire lives without noticing it, being aware of it, and healing it. Are you willing to unfold the memories?

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution, Amber has the privilege to talk to Gabby Bernstein about her upcoming book, Happy Days. In this book, she discusses traumas, how they appear based on the triggers of our daily lives, and how to take back control of it all. Our health – not only mental health, but physical – can be affected by hidden wounds and not addressing it can be a problem. Gabby also talks about her writing process and how her own story influenced her purpose.

Wellness Quote

  • “Ultimately, those experiences in our lives that were seemingly insignificant were tremendously impactful to our belief system, to how we perceive ourselves, to our nervous system, to the ways that we show up in relationships, to our attachment styles. So, every human has experienced trauma in some form and there’s absolutely no way that you could be alive at this time and say that you haven’t.” – Gabby Bernstein
