Today I created a short pause in my day as I was running errands. Pausing what you’re doing is a quick way to become present, which helps to ease any feelings of anxiety. I decided to stop at a park and notice 5 things that were in front of me. I saw a dog running, someone talking on their phone, leaves swaying in the wind, a car driving by and a person eating their lunch. I closed my eyes and noticed 5 sounds. I could hear the wind, the siren, a bee buzzing, someone talking on the phone, and dog playing catch. I noticed smells…which smells like spring time. I noticed the taste in my mouth. This short exercised helped me quickly ground my body, feel calmer and feel ready to continue my day.
