      I think of it like a bookshelf you can pick the book off the shelf read a few pages but put it back…basically I’m saying the moments of not being in reality let yourself read the page but put it back on the shelf. Sometimes I set a timer and allow myself to be completely disconnected for a short period of time and it allows you to kind of purge those thoughts rather than fight the intrusive thoughts constantly because you try to push them away.

      Sometimes a can’t concentrate on reading or watching something, the grounding exercises I use involve all five senses: touch a soft blanket, eat something with a lot of flavor, smell a candle or essential oils, look at some art, listen to music or an audio book. 💕 feel free to message me!
