Tame Your Heart’s Rollercoaster
Chapter 2 : How to find immediate relief 30mins
This chapter presents the most efficient way to ‘snap-back’ from the ride, where you learn all about grounding yourself in the present.
Choose somewhere out of the way that you can do this activity without interruption. Then breathe in and out deeply.
Start with your eyes. Conciously choose something in your immediate surroundings that you can see, and name it out loud. Eg. ‘Air-conditioner’, ‘window’, or ‘table’. Then do the same for each of the other senses (sound, taste, touch, smell).
Keep repeating step 2 until you feel calm; It will slowly bring your mind back to your present environment and will allow those chaotic chemicals to calm down enough for you to think clearer.
