Feeling Anxious? The Anchoring Heart Technique Might Help
Feeling anxious? Non-profit Opus Peace suggests the Anchoring Heart Technique as a way to ground yourself and feel more secure.
There are 3 steps to the Anchoring Heart Technique:
1. Place your hand (or both hands) on your heart firmly and tenderly and breathe deeply. You can keep your eyes open, lower them, or close them – whatever is most comfortable for you or whatever the circumstance might dictate. Be aware of your heart beat.
2. Feel whatever uncomfortable feeling that you are experiencing (even if it is just for a few seconds)
3. Be curious about the place inside that is NOT afraid of emotional pain. Feel your inner strength. Know you can handle this moment.
