Anxiety counting

Count to five

Take a breath

Take a break

Take a step

Step away

 

Count to five

Don't step over the edge

Stay one step closer

Say off the end

 

Count to five

 

One.

Breathe in

Breathe out

Feel the world around you

 

Two.

Feel the ground beneath your feet

Stay attached 

Stay grounded

Stay safe

 

Three.

Take a look

Take a listen

See life around you

Hear the sounds of the world

 

Four.

Sense yourself drifting through the air

Stay there

Keep your mind and body down 

 

Five.

View the world

Try a different lens

Looking better?

good.

 

One

Two

Three

Four

five
