Yoga has helped me develop this little coping technique when I’m feeling a bit too chaotic. It doesn’t really help with anxiety, but for general stress or depressive moments where you find yourself stuck in the past, it works really well. Basically I stop, take a breath, and run through each of the five senses.
So I’m not stressed at the moment, but as an example:
It’s not really about “counting your blessings”, but more to do with taking stock and pulling yourself back to the present moment. For me, it stops me thinking about things that have already happened and brings my focus back to what’s around me right now.
Anyway I don’t know if this is helpful, I’m not a health or wellness expert, but it might work for some folk.
