Mindfulness is an effective way to ground yourself in the moment. You can practice by using the five senses in your surroundings to ground yourself warding off anxiety or worry. How about using gratitude to ground yourself?
Instead of identifying things you can hear, smell, touch, taste or see, name five things you’re grateful to have in your life. Practicing gratitude sincerely with an open heart can reduce worry in your life.
The next time you need to take a deep breath, try naming a few things you’re grateful to have. It might pave the way for a new way of looking at life.
