Anxiety – Immediate Help through Grounding

There are techniques that can help you right away when you experience anxiety. They are not a replacement for professional treatment and therapy but can often be helpful when one experiences anxiety. One such strategy is grounding, meaning reconnecting with the physical world around you in a way that helps you calm down and lessen your anxiety. There are several ways to accomplish a greater feeling of groundedness, such as through mindfulness practices. One very simple technique is the 333 rule.

The 333 rule: Look around you and

name 3 things you see
identify 3 sounds you hear
move or touch 3 things, such as your limbs or external objects
