“Why are you crying? It’s just cake!”
Like many people, I love watching The Great British Baking Show. While watching an episode with my family a few nights ago, the comment above caused me to start reframing what I was viewing through a self-Reg lens. I began to identify stressors from across the domains that were impacting the contestants, the effect stress had on their behaviour, and some strategies they used to reduce stressors for themselves and others. Isn‘t it amazing that once we begin to look at life through a Self-Reg lens, it colours how we see everything, even reality TV!
