When we use all our senses, we notice a lot more of our surroundings. This exercise is also a great way to help us relax when feeling nervous or anxious.
Step 1: Start by taking a long, deep breath.
Step 2: See three things around you. Look both in front of you and behind you. What do you see?
Step 3: Touch two things around you. You could start with the ground beneath your feet, touch things that are close to you or a short distance away. What do you touch?
Step 4: Smell one thing around you. Is there anything in flower? Do any of the plants smell? You might have to get up close to a plant to catch it’s smell.
At the end of this exercise take a long, deep breath.
