How Do Grounding Techniques Work For Anxiety Relief?

Anxiety therapy teaches you how to get out of your mind and back in your body. You will learn how to control your anxious mind and take charge of your life again. It’s true that engaging in therapy is often times the last resort for all of us after trying many things on your own that fail or don’t last. When you partner with a Winter Garden anxiety counselor you learn the best and right ways to conquer anxiety!

Self-Help Is Common

It’s normal to avoid getting real help. There’s are many things we try first. Maybe we have turned towards changing our diet, whether or not we consume substances, taking different medications, working more or working less, reading self help books, engaging in yoga, engaging in energy work, the list goes on and on.

Professional Help Is Best

Are we being intentional about experiencing our emotional inner worlds or are we experientially avoiding them?
As the saying goes: sometimes less is more and partnering with a professional gives you tools that target anxiety quickly. Winter Garden anxiety therapy teaches you exactly how easy it can be to eliminate anxiety, stop panic attacks, and control constant worry.

Maybe it’s our cultural influences, how our parents raised us, or maybe it’s deep rooted societal norms passed down to us; we are taught to be doing, being efficient, and to do more and be more.

Grounding For Anxiety Relief

Grounding into our lives takes practice and patience. Occasionally clients reject the word “grounding.”  Maybe you have experienced a traumatic event and are in a constant state of autopilot or dissociation where it feels like life is happening to you. Perhaps your mantra is “fake it till you make it” or “just keep swimming.”

Maybe you have tried meditating and your headspace feels like I-4, or you’ve had a bad yoga class experience. Maybe chanting Om Shanti Om feels inauthentic. We get that.

Calming Nervous Energy

Grounding is less about creating a forced silence and more about calming the nervous system so that we can become more intentional about what we are doing with our lives. It is about connecting with yourself and your value system so that you can choose joy even when its hard to find.

Sure, grounding can feel like a really good yoga class, or the clarity received during meditation. It can also feel like the joy you feel around your kids or family. Being in a state of flow is the ability to dance when your favorite song comes on. Its the feeling you get when you take a hot shower or finally get a moment of peace to yourself. Maybe its your morning coffee.

Hold on to that feeling.

Remind yourself you are enough, you are safe in your body and then ask yourself:

  • Where do I feel most in flow?
  • Where do I feel at ease?
  • Is it hard for me to let go?
  • In what areas can I be more intentional with my life?
  • What do I want to do today?
  • How do I want to relax today? What do I want to learn today? How do I feel right now?
  • Who do I want to be today?
