In periods of high stress, anxiety, or panic, you might find that using a grounding technique is a helpful way of immediately connecting with the present moment. Many grounding techniques are rooted in the senses as a way to remind ourselves and our bodies that the present moment is safe. For example, one of our favorite grounding techniques is 5-4-3-2-1 whereby you say, out loud, 5 things you see, 4 things you feel, 3 things you hear, 2 things you smell, and 1 thing you taste.
In the spirit of 5-4-3-2-1, we wanted to root our gift guide in the senses. This specific guide is focused on sight. Whether you are adding pieces of art to your home, carrying a camera around with you to take photos, or using an LED projector to lightly illuminate a room at night – these suggestions are aimed at helping you feel grounded in the truth of what you can see.
