Help with Anxiety
We all feel anxiety. Here is a simple way to practice grounding in order to release some of your anxiety.
Pause for a moment.
Find 5 things you can see.
Find 4 things you can touch.
Find 3 things you can hear.
Find 2 things you can smell.
Find 1 thing you can taste.
Take one long slow inhale and one long slow exhale.
Repeat until you find yourself focused on your actual environment and not on your stressor.
If you ground yourself, it can help you regain control by noticing your environment and taking a moment to yourself.
You're not alone, we all feel anxiety at times. If you find your anxiety is severe or dibilatating. Please don't be hard on yourself and please talk to your doctor.
