I've had to double down on my mindfulness practices and grounding techniques these past few weeks, as I'm sure a lot of you have as well. For me, mindfulness looks different everyday. Sometimes a long guided meditation is what I need to ground me, and sometimes it's eating cheese string out on the grass in my backyard (are you a peeler or a biter?? Serious inquiry). Whatever grounding techniques work for you, write them down! Make a list to come back to in times of stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I go over more mindfulness skills in my Intro to Mindfulness course! It's always a good time to learn some grounding tools, now more than ever.
