PETS offers non-licensed, unprofessional action oriented suggestions that might help some people. PETS therapists are volunteers and receive no specialized psychological training and essentially make it up.
Say the name of someone or something (yourself included) until it has no/know/new meaning.
If you are at the bus stop, or waiting on a train, relax and feel your feet on the ground.
Feel your knees and hips, your spine release, sending energy upwards.
Feel your wrists and palms. Wiggle your fingers. Hold you hand up to the sky.
See the sky through your fingers. Imagine the Earth and all it’s creatures hurtling through
space, soundless velocity, more than miraculous. Every moment.
