Grounding: Social Story
When I feel mad or upset, I can practice grounding.
When I use grounding I pay attention to the way things feel.
I can pay attention to the way my body feels on a seat.
I can pay attention to the way my feet feel on the ground.
I can pay attention to how my clothes feel against my body.
I can also practice grounding by paying attention to how the air and other things around me feel.
When I practice grounding it can help me pay attention to things other than the bad feelings.
Grounding can help me to stay in my resilient zone, or OK zone.
When I can stay in my resilient or OK Zone I can keep working on my goals.
