Whilst we are a few weeks within the semester, I have one question to ask: how is everyone? Are you all doing alright? Drinking plenty of water? Getting some fresh air, making good decisions? Good!

Anyways, the post for this Thursday is going to be about grounding; one of the most infamous methods of easing panic attacks. From my personal experience with my anxiety, I have found that this method has worked in helping me stay rooted, and has helped me focus on the now.

Here’s how it works: when you feel a panic attack on the way, look for:

5 Things you can see

4 Things you can touch/feel

3 Things you can hear

2 Things you can smell

1 Thing you can taste

This method will help you develop a sense of where you are, and will allow you to focus on something other than worrying.

Also, don’t forget to B R E A T H E.
