Notice 5 Things

​This is a simple exercise to help centre yourself and connect with your environment.

  1. Pause for a moment...

  2. Look around and notice 5 things you can see,

  3. listen carefully, and notice 5 things you can hear,

  4. lastly, notice 5 things you can feel, in contact with your body

Although this grounding exercise is very useful during times of high anxiety and stress, making a regular habit of practicing it throughout the day trains our mind to be in the present moment, avoiding getting caught up in negative thought patterns, building our long-term resilience to stress.

Please do not watch or listen to this material whilst driving or operating machinery or where it is not safe for you to close your eyes and fully relax.
