Feeling Overwhelmed?  This is a quick, useful and simple exercise to center yourself and connect with your environment.  Practice this anytime throughout the day, especially if you feel like your mind is racing or you are getting caught up in your thoughts and feelings.

1. Pause for a moment and take a deep breath

2. Look around and notice 5 things you can see

3. Listen, and notice 5 things you can hear

4. Notice 5 things that are touching you (a chair, a wristwatch, air on your face, your shoes)

Done!  Feel better?

Let’s Un-stress!
