5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Bye-Bye Anxiety!

Try this technique yourself or with someone else in a moment of anxiety or worry.

Begin by taking a deep breath and as you exhale, notice:

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

Continue by following your breath and notice what has shifted. This technique is useful to break free from looping thoughts.
