also useful grounding technique:
I suggest combining any of these with slow deeper than normal .abdominal breathing. Ab breathing in general is useful, you don’t need to mediate for hours if that isn’t your thing. Just do at least 3 deeper than normal abdominal breaths when you notice stress level rising, more if you can. If you notice your clenching your teeth, tensing your shoulders, worry thought repeating, try at least 3 deeper than normal breaths.
