5 Practices For Staying Grounded and Defeating Anxiety

5 Practices For Staying Grounded and Defeating Anxiety

Grounded. Ask yourself what does that word mean to you. Humble? Real? Down to Earth? Whatever your interpretation of it is, I'm sure you get the gist. Now ask yourself how it features in your life. Whether you look at it from an esoteric point of view or you're more black and white in your approach; remaining grounded in tough situations can be such a benefit to how you live your life.
