In the moment
I learned several techniques that are going to help me stay in the moment. It is all about retraining the mind in those times when you are mind is everywhere .
When you feel stressed take time out to feel the moment.
I like the idea of 54321 technique and also describing what you see around you
I love the PITCH. I will be practicing this. The body scan I think will be a useful grounding tool for me.
Love this audio. Learnt a lot from these techniques. Will definitely be practising and journaling
Being with friends
Being with friends and just relaxing together instead of going out and doing things is really helpful for me. Nicki and I Stopped by Nate and Shannon today and Sawyer played with Scarlet and Vivian. We played cards and I had an exceptional day. Was able to come home and do a 20 minute workout with Tunde on the Peloton.
Grounding helps you get into your body, reminds you that you are safe and brings you into the present so you can access more of your tools instead of ruminating or spinning.
