The Coping Kete

No. 68: Grounded in my Hands

This week, to attain, maintain or regain my sense of wellbeing…

When I notice shifts in mood, I will practice grounding myself in my body by very simply stroking my left hand with my right hand.

I will breathe and focus my attention on my hands and then slowly move my attention inside my body: what does it feel like inside my body right now? I will keep breathing as I bring my attention back to the outside and the sensations of my hands.

Here I am in my body, breathing.

Once I am comfortable making myself present in my body by stroking my hand, I will add it to my Personal Coping Kete as a way of grounding myself during moments of intensity or distress.
