Sometimes we find ourselves overwhelmed. This may be a result of too much to do and not enough time to do it.

It may also be because emotionally, we have suffered a loss that sometimes makes us feel we are drowning, as our sadness washes over us, and we fear it may sweep us away.

This recording doesn’t replace professional advice. It offers a simple exercise that takes only a few minutes to help ground us now and reduce feeling overwhelmed.

Sometimes those few minutes can make all the difference. Use this technique anytime you feel overwhelmed or under stress and need a moment to pause.

It can also be a helpful exercise before a meeting starts or a class, to help bring your focus to the moment and let whatever else is happening to be put to one side, to pick up again later, if needs be.
