Pick three things to help you feel grounded.  Incorporate them into your day when you are feeling calm. Incorporating these techniques while you feel calm can  help build your mindfulness muscle which will help you handle stress better. 

They might be:

1. Create a daily schedule

2. Taking a walk

3. Create a gratitude List


1. Close your eyes for 90 seconds

2. Stand and stretch every hour

3. Reach out to a friend once a week. 

Everyone’s list is different. See what works best for you.
