c) Do this Get a chair and put it’s back to the wall (this is crucial). Sit quietly for 1- 3 minutes: Your eyes can be open or closed, whichever is easiest for you.
Sit upright, Simply think about where your body contacts the chair. If your mind wonders, so be it. Bring it back to where you feel your body being in contact with the chair. “Feel” that the chair is supporting you and that you are safe. This video may help
D) Plan to eat 6 times a day. Little and often.
This could suggest a pattern of breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch time, mid afternoon snack, dinner, evening snack. For this week, things as small as a grape, a bit of an apple, a slice of ham can count as a snack! Even if you don’t feel hungry
