Grounding is a practice that can help you pull away from flashbacks, unwanted memories, and negative or challenging emotions.⁠

These techniques may help distract you from what you’re experiencing and refocus on what’s happening in the present moment.⁠

You can use grounding techniques to help create space from distressing feelings in nearly any situation, but they’re especially helpful if you’re dealing with:⁠
⁠-anxiety⁠
-post-traumatic stress disorder⁠
-dissociation⁠
-self-harm urges⁠
-traumatic memories⁠
-substance use disorder⁠
