Feel Grounded in 5-4-3-2-1

These beautifully designed printables inspire you to stay in the present through reminding you of this simple, sensory-driven grounding activity:

Name 5 things you can see.
Name 4 things you can feel.
Name 3 things you can hear.
Name 2 things you can smell.
Name 1 thing you can taste.

This grounding technique is especially helpful in moments of extreme emotions, dissociations, or flashbacks. Equally important, practicing this technique even while you feel calm can help further build your coping abilities. We recommend printing your favorites and putting them in a place where you will see it often.”

Learning the live in the present moment is part of the path of joy. Sarah Ban Breathnach
