Welcome to the Channel Mum Anchoring video with Psychologist Emma Kenny. You can do this 15 minute guided exercise as part of the Channel Mum anxiety Series or feel free to use it as a standalone relaxation.
Anchoring is a very useful too for both relaxing your body and mind now as well as in stressful situations in the future.
How to anchor your body
Find a comfortable and quiet place and make sure you aren’t going to be disturbed for at least 15 minutes.
Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and turn your phone to airplane mode.
Let Emma’s voice guide you through the stretches and breathing exercises to fully relax your body and mind.
Allow other thoughts to come in and out of your mind if they want to but always bring your mind back to the present and relaxing.
Create a picture in your mind of how calm, peaceful and relaxed you are and gently squeeze your right thumb.
In the future when you squeeze your right thumb these memories will fill your mind and body and help you relax again.
Once the relaxation is over take time to open your eyes and get up slowly. Give yourself time to have a glass of water and reflect.
