Window of Tolerance: Knowing When Self-Care is Critical

Difficult times and trauma impact our ability to manage stressors influencing our capacity to productively respond to presented situations. As stressors increase, our tolerance of even the slightest changes to our environment or plans can significantly decrease. Everyone is experiencing the current pandemic and social events differently based on their own window of tolerance. As the pandemic continues and social crises evolve, our windows of tolerance can narrow or even close entirely.

Learn how to identify the boundaries of your window of tolerance and those of others, as well as some tactics to open your window of tolerance and restore healthy response to stressors.
