5-5-5

greatideaIn moments of extreme anxiety or panic, you lose your sense of being grounded or centered. It may be difficult to think clearly (brain fog). Try this technique for emotional grounding:

Name 5 things you can see right now.

Name 5 things you could touch right now.

Name 5 things you can hear right now.

Using your physical senses like this helps you to stay present in the moment, think more clearly, and deal with the situation at hand.
