Self-soothing our senses
Self-soothing is a quick and effective way to reduce the intensity of negative emotions. You can calm and heal yourself using your different senses. Here's a list of self-soothing things to do involving sight, touch, sound, smell and taste.
Sight: low lighting, relaxing colours, sleeping mask, colouring book, Pinterest collage.
Touch: soft things, cuddly things, massages, hot/cold showers, heated/weighted blanket.
autonomous sensory meridian response videos, nature sounds, guided meditations, binaural beats (emerging form of soundwave therapy).
Smell: Aromatherapy, fresh air, candles, incense, comforting smells (blanket, clothing)
Taste: strong flavours, warm drinks, eating slowly, nostalgic flavours
