5..4..3..2..1.. grounding exercise for adults and kids

A grounding activity I teach my kids at school is to name...

5 things they can see 4 things they can hear 3 things they can touch 2 things they can smell 1 thing they can taste

It helps them to ground themselves, especially if they're are feeling worried or anxious, to create a pause and settle their minds x

I encourage them (if it feels right) to count backwards on our fingers so they have something physical to help them focus and to help with counting.

Calm have put together some free meditations, music, classes, yoga and sleep stories.

I wanted to share this wit you guys in case you needed it too 💜
