Sometimes we forget the basics, leaving our selves in the dust for our modern distractions. Cutting out all the noise of the outside world is an important step to getting in touch with our senses.
A great way to reset is to sit in a place where you can feel connected utilizing all of your senses. This could be in your room, by a creek, in your favorite recliner, under a weighted blanket, where ever you feel a sense of calm! Feel free to turn on your favorite song or if you are out in nature you can always stick to the natural noises. Try to sync your breath with the sounds, in for 4 seconds, out for 4 seconds. When your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to your breath, in for 4 and out for 4.
This is a great technique to curve any urges, temptations, or negative feelings you may be experiencing. Even if this is only a few minutes of your day, it can serve as your own personal reset button!
