Soothing Anxiety Through the Sense of Touch

Anxiety can be overwhelming, but your sense of touch can be a powerful ally in finding calm. Simple tactile sensations can ground you in the present moment, easing anxious thoughts. Try running your fingers over a textured object, like a soft blanket or a worry stone. The gentle pressure of touch can provide comfort and reassurance. Another effective method is progressive muscle relaxation. Start at your toes and work your way up, tensing and then releasing each muscle group. This process helps release physical tension, promoting relaxation. Consider engaging in activities like knitting or squeezing a stress ball to channel anxious energy into something tactile and productive
