No Cause for alarm

Often our brains will interpret danger when there isn’t any in the present moment.

Take a step outside your head

Our thoughts, feelings, and memories are not always our best friend and can lead to unnecessary distress.

And gain moments of calm

Sometimes we need to find a calm oasis that is in the outside world not in our heads

By grounding be led

Grounding can help us find these moments of calm

And so by the present be fed

These experiences of the present as benign can then make us feel more safe and solid

 

How do I get Grounded?

You can get grounded  in any of the following ways:

  • Use your senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell to notice safe objects or have positive experiences of the present. See the photo and caption below for an example of using your senses to create a sense of calm.
  • Learn to develop slow and deep breathing as it helps tell your brain there is no current danger and allows your body to relax. Instructions for supportive breathing are included in my book.
  • We can also use our body awareness and movement to ground ourselves. Some activities that can be particularly helpful are walking, playing sport, or any physical activity that takes us out of constantly living in our head.

For further details about Grounding see the Excerpt of my book on the website.
