The 5-4-3-2-1 GROUNDING DOWN TECHNIQUE!!!

Updated: May 19, 2020

This five-step exercise is very beneficial for when your mind starts to do somersaults. XD Jokes aside. This technique can help you calm down to a great level. Instructions below - First, try to breathe deeply to make your mind calm a bit. And then acknowledge: 5: Acknowledge FIVE things you see around you. It could be a pen, a spot on the ceiling, anything in your surroundings. 4: Acknowledge FOUR things you can touch around you. It could be your hair, a pillow, or the ground under your feet. 3: Acknowledge THREE things you hear. This could be any external sound. If you can hear your belly rumbling that counts! Focus on things you can hear outside of your body. 2: Acknowledge TWO things you can smell. Maybe you are in your office and smell a pencil, or maybe you are in your bedroom and smell a pillow. If you need to take a brief walk to find a scent you could smell soap in your bathroom, or nature outside. 1: Acknowledge ONE thing you can taste. What does the inside of your mouth taste like—gum, coffee, or the sandwich from lunch? This is a great exercise that you should give a try. If once is not enough try it two times with different things. I hope this helps you! ( ꈍᴗꈍ)
