What is the Grounding Techniques Worksheet?

Grounding is a set of simple strategies that can help you detach from the emotional pain (e.g., anxiety, anger, sadness, self-harm). It is basically a way to distract yourself by focusing on something other than the difficult emotions you are experiencing. You may also think of grounding as centring, distracting, creating a safe place, or healthy detachment.

How will the Grounding Techniques Worksheet help?

There are three types of grounding. 

You may find that one of these types works better for you, or that each is helpful. 

1. Mental (focusing your mind)

3. Soothing (talking to yourself in a very kind way)

This worksheet will help you to stay in your present and shift your focus from unnecessary things.
