Sensory Awareness

This is another group of questions that can help with anxiety. Bringing you out of your head and into the present moment. I recorded this onto my Voice Memos of my phone and my iPod because I usually have at least one of them with me so I can refer to it anywhere I am. I also wrote it out in Notes on my phone in case I’m not able to listen to the Voice Memo.

– Find a comfortable position
– Listen or read the questions below, listening for a response to each question
