Dealing with Overwhelm

Grounding exercises for when you feel un-anchored or are experiencing overwhelm, mild or strong dissociation or other challenges with staying present. This is from a website directed towards men and male experiences with mental health issues stemming from abuse or adversity. Yet, there is much relevant for any human being. (See the “no straight lines” video about maps.) Visit here when you need some reminders of grounding exercises to try – find the ones that suit you.

 

Rain and Soft Songs

In addition to the Meditations of Tara Brach I posted in April: The sounds of rain and thunder may be part of your repertoire of engaging your soul, brain and body a bit differently.  I recently came across this song by Lindsey Lou: “Simple and Sober”, from the album Southland. Consider making your own collection of links you find grounding.
