Grounding Techniques: 33 Ways to Calm Yourself

“Hello there! I’m here to provide you with a bit of information on grounding techniques and how they can help you as a survivor or a bystander of any violation or sexual and gender-based violence. I would like to remind you that suggestions on this post should not be taken as medical advice, therapy, or as a one-size-fits-all approach.  Keep in mind that every individual’s journey of navigating through trauma and supporting an individual who is undergoing trauma is distinctive because you are one of a kind and no person is truly like you!  Experiencing abuse in any form is NOT OKAY, but what you are experiencing as a result of abuse is valid.  Please know that healing is not a formula and is not for anyone else to define for you. You do you, and you follow all that you need to follow, to help yourself. If you need additional resources or just someone to talk to, feel free to reach out to Imaara Foundation."

What does grounding technique mean?

Take a guess! The definition is present in the phrase. Grounding is synonymous with the word 'ground' - the solid surface of the earth. Scientifically speaking, the earth exudes electrical charges. Connecting your senses, body, and relation with other human beings to the earth and its electrical charges can lead to positive outcomes on your body and mind.
