Grounding is the act of bringing the mind back to the present by distracting it from unwanted activities. The activities can take the form of ruminating thoughts, painful memories, or persistent worrying. Grounding techniques are the mode in which grounding can be achieved. They can be used to help with symptoms of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety, disassociation, or self-harm urges. The techniques use physical, mental, and soothing methods to navigate a calmer state.

I’m the Tay behind Tay’s Bi-Polar Kitchen. I started this blog to share my kitchen and mental health wellness journey. I want to show people they are not alone in their struggles, combat the stigma associated with mental disorders, and be open and honest about their mental health. In my opinion, these three issues stand as barriers to seeking treatment. If this website inspires someone to move closer to mental health wellness for themselves or another, my work has been done.
Welcome to my table; I hope you say a while.
