Writing can be used as a form of meditation to direct our focus away from the negative and onto the neutral or the positive. If our mind is too busy to sit and meditate, writing gives it something to do. In this way, we grant ourselves a small reprieve from worry and allow the nervous system to begin to settle. 

Try these two writing exercises (2 mins each):

1. Get a pen and paper (or other writing tools)

Pick something you can see and describe it fully. Write for 2 minutes and try to include all senses: sight, smell, touch, sound and taste.

Using all the senses is grounding. It gets you out of your head and into your body.

2. Take a deep breath and choose something you’re grateful for (even if that’s hard to feel right now). Fully describe that thing, using the five senses (as above).
