what are your thoughts on the use of ASMR as part of a grounding technique ?
also, what grounding techniques worked for you?
after recenly discovering I’ve had periods of Disassociation & depersonalisation from late childhood, I’ve tried various grounding techniques, which sadly have been hit & miss so far.
I stumbled by chance on this ASMR video, made by a lady suffering from Anxiety & disassociation.
I’m familiar with the five sense grounding techneq. however, something about hearing someone walk me thru the steps in a soft compassionate tone, that kept me present for much longer while doing them.
I was astonished at how peaceful I felt afterwords. but also laughed when I was startled by my leg moving while deep in thought; because I’ve never been that aware of it!
