GROUND YOURSELF INSTANTLY
Before you tackle your mounting to-do list, try this mindfulness trick. “As we go through the day, our brain tends to play out future scenarios or get stuck reliving the past,” says Sophie Lazarus, PH.D., clinical assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral health at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “This can help you focus and connect to the moment.”
Pause. That’s it—just stop what you’re doing.
Feel both feet on the ground.
Take one full breath—eyes open or closed.
Go and take on your next task.
