Anxiety Grounding worksheet
What is the theory behind this Anxiety Grounding worksheet?
A set of basic techniques known as “grounding” will assist you in disconnecting from the emotional suffering (such as rage, anxiety, grief, and self-harm). Basically, it’s a strategy for diverting your attention from the challenging feelings you’re going through. Although grounding doesn’t address the issue that is making you feel bad, it does give you a short-term means of taking charge of your emotions and averting a worsening of the situation. According to research, grounding has a greater positive impact on mood than relaxing alone.
