Feeling all over the shop and burned out? Try some grounding techniques. Stop and take a breath. Notice things around you. Acknowledge them. Tick off the following mentally:
5 things you can see
4 things you can touch
3 things you can hear
2 things you can smell
1 thing you can taste
This will help you move through distressing moments, focus your thinking and calm you down. It will help you feel more present and ground you to your surroundings when you’re disassociating, having flashbacks or feeling anxious. Try it now!
