Tips to Help With an Anxiety Attack…

from Youth Mental Health Canada

Look around you:

  • Find five (5) things you can see,
  • Four (4) things you can touch,
  • Three (3) things you can hear,
  • Two (2) things you can smell,
  • And one (1) thing you can taste.

This is called grounding. It can help when you feel like you have lost all control of your surroundings.

Give it a try!

Naming one (1) thing you can taste (among other things), is a great way to ground yourself when having an anxiety attack.
