5 Everyday Activities You Didn't Know Were Grounding Techniques
Guest blog post written by Sarah Burton, LMHC
Did you know there are things you do all the time that can be used as a way to ground yourself? These grounding techniques are generally something you already do (or can do) every day. The goals of grounding are to stay present in the moment, decrease the severity of intense emotions, and calm an overactive nervous system. Here are five activities you can add to your grounding toolkit.
Remember, the key to grounding is practice, practice, and more practice even when you don’t need to be grounded. Grounding techniques can be your best friend when they become habitual, and in time they will be instinctual. Utilizing grounding skills that you already do every day may make it easier to remember to practice. You may even get to the point where driving and singing and dancing, all at the same time, is your favorite thing to do!
