4 Simple Grounding Exercises You Can Do Anytime
Grounding is the process of managing anxiety by focusing on physical occurrences. The theory behind grounding is that by bringing your attention to things that are actually happening, you should be able to tune out negative or worrisome thoughts. One of the most common forms of this is meditation, a practice which involves being in a quiet place – often alone – and calming the mind by focusing on breathing or other physical sensations. This may seem like an impossible feat if you are in a situation where you’re feeling overwhelmed in a place that is public or noisy. However, there are several grounding exercises that can be done anywhere, anytime you feel the need to take a break and clear your head.
