An exercise in Mindfulness
There is plenty debate in the talk therapy world as to the usefulness of mindfulness based activities. In my practice, I have taken the time to gather plenty of resources with respect to any and all augmented services or tactics that may be helpful to each individual client. While some of those mindfulness based activities can be so difficult and time consuming, this one below is simple and has helped many a client, even the youngest of them, ground in a reality that can alleviate whatever distress they may be feeling. 

When distressed, as yourself
5 things you can see
4 things you can touch
3 things you can hear
2 things you can smell
1 thing you can taste

Take a moment to absorb each step.
