Examples of Positive Triggers.

A few weeks ago, I posted a blog entitled not all triggers are negative. Since the posting, I have been asked to provide examples of positive triggers. As always, people are individuals, and what one finds as a positive trigger may not be so positive for some. There are always a few that are universal.

Even in the dreariest winter a bright sunny day lifts the mood of most people.

Getting out in our natural surroundings is a rea boost.

Flowers and Flower Gardens.

Flowers allow you to engage both your eyes and your sense of smell. Standing in a field of lavender, like in this picture, hits your nose as much as your eyes.

Puppies just make you smile.

For most people, especially women, a baby instantly brings a smile.


Bipolar causes us to concentrate on the negative and tracking our triggers; we naturally gravitate to the triggers that cause a negative reaction. But we also encounter triggers that cause a positive reaction. It is important to capture those events as well. In capturing the positive triggers around us, we are drawn to find more.

Please let me know in the comments of your positive triggers or your experience with bipolar disorder. I pray you found this information helpful to you. Please like and share this post.

As we conclude this week’s blog post, always remember our battle with bipolar disorder is with and in our minds. Our struggle is with our illness, not with other people, places, situations, or other external things. Our goal is to develop the self-discipline to take control of our emotions, minds, and lives. 

The great inspirational speaker, Jim Rohn, said:” Work harder on yourself than anything else.” 

I say,” Work hard on yourself, and everything else falls into place like magic.”

Keep to the path, the hard one. The easy one does not go anywhere.

Many other people blog on bipolar and related subjects. Mental wellness is all about knowledge and learning about ourselves. The more informed we are, the easier our struggles may be. Each week I attach a blog that I found interesting that may inform you. The following blog is another author’s work.  I hope you enjoy this week’s blog created by Elenore Haley

  1. The way I see it is if it’s a trigger, it’s negative to me. Noise, hot weather, certain people-to name a few- are all triggers to me but others might like these things.
