Tips for Feeling Grounded

Feeling grounded is such an instrumental piece of psychotherapy and even life in general.  Many counseling interventions such as EMDR, CBT, and ACT , just to name a few, all initiate by stability and grounding techniques.  Feeling grounded refers to being connected to the present moment and to the physical world around you. Here are some tips that may help you feel more grounded:

  1. Deep Breathing: When you feel stressed or anxious, take a few deep breaths to help calm your body and mind.
  2. Focus on your senses: Notice what you can see, hear, touch, smell, and taste in your immediate environment. This can help you feel more present and connected to the world around you.
  3. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is simply the practice of being present in the moment without judgment. Try focusing on your breath, body sensations, taking yoga or tai chi to bring your attention to the present moment.
  4. Spend time in nature: Try going for a walk in a park, hiking, or simply sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air.
  5. Engage in Physical Activity: Engaging in physical activity can help you feel more connected to your body and the present moment and even boosts endorphins! Try going for a run, doing yoga, or going for a swim.
  6. Practice gratitude: Take a few minutes each day to recognize the things you are grateful for. This can help you feel more connected to the present moment and to the positive things in your life.
  7. Connect with others: Talking with friends or loved ones can help you feel more grounded and connected to the world around you. Reach out to someone you trust and have a conversation.

Remember, feeling grounded takes practice and patience!

Thank you for your interest in Silver Linings Mental Health. We understand therapy can be an intimidating process and we recognize that it requires great courage to reach out. We have a team of compassionate therapists eager to help.


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Proud Owner of Silver Linings Mental Health.  I am currently focusing on expanding our practice, teaching trauma informed care through the Silver Linings Institute, and providing consultation services to other practice owners.

I love empowering other therapists to take the leap into the world of private practice.  Whether you are an already established practice or are just beginning, I will provide guidance.  Oftentimes, the biggest obstacle is transferring from a therapist’s mindset to now being a business owner. 

The therapist’s mindset encompasses a deep understanding of human behavior, emotional intelligence, and effective communication. This perspective is invaluable in navigating interpersonal relationships, fostering a positive company culture, and addressing the psychological aspects of both employees and clients.

Simultaneously, the business owner mindset contributes a results-driven orientation, strategic vision, and a keen sense of adaptability to the mix. Entrepreneurs are adept at setting goals, making informed decisions, and steering their company through challenges.

The merging of these two mindsets can result in a holistic leadership style that recognizes the symbiotic relationship between employee well-being and business success. This integrative approach not only enhances team dynamics but also cultivates a work environment where individuals feel understood, supported, and motivated to contribute their best, thereby creating a thriving and sustainable business.  I will help you with combining both mindsets in order to foster a sustainable business plan.
