Take things down a notch in high stress situations
When you’re in situations of high stress, grounding techniques are a great way to take things down a notch. They help you calm your mind by focusing it on something else.
When your mind has a healthy distraction, you get distance from the thoughts and feelings that are causing you stress. This distance gives your body a chance to calm itself.
This practice is best for times when you have a moment to take a break and can return to the same spot over and over. Times when you're at home, work, or school are best for this practice.
