When we're anxious or stressed, we're focused on the past or the future. Mindfulness, such as grounding, helps you focus on the now. This activity teaches:
How to use an object - such as a grounding stone - to help you stay in the moment
How to use your senses to stay mindful of your experience
How to use grounding to help with symptoms of anxiety, stress, or PTSD
Your students will leave with a tangible skill they can use forever. This event works for in-person or online groups!
Add Some Creativity
If you'd like to add some creativity to your event, you can also include a decorating option. If you are presenting in person at an event or booth, provide rocks and decorating supplies. If you're presenting on Zoom, give your group a heads up and ask them to bring a stone and a few supplies. This makes the activity fun and memorable!
The worksheet reviews the importance of mindfulness, and how it works. It also includes a handy take-home of the grounding stone instructions, along with a page on creating your own grounding activities.
The worksheet covers:
How to use a grounding stone as a mindfulness tool
Ideas for decorating your stone
How mindfulness and grounding work
How to create your own grounding exercise
The worksheet can be used as it is, or updated in Canva.
The Audio Meditation
The audio meditation walks your group through using a grounding stone. It includes breathing and mindfulness techniques. You will receive a link to play the audio on YouTube. You may also share this link with your clients if you like.
The guided meditation lasts around 5 minutes. Get the link here.
The poster walks through the steps of using a grounding stone. Print it as a flyer, send the PDF, or display it at your event.
Reviews of the Grounding Stone Kit
"This was perfect. I needed a mindfulness activity for my students. I downloaded the worksheet and we listened to the audio together. We all felt more relaxed afterwards! It was so fast and affordable. Thank you!!"
- Stacey, School Counselor
"We had heard about grounding stones and wanted to use them for a wellness event. This poster worked great. We set up a table and had rocks and decorating supplies out. People were able to follow the instructions on the poster and take the handouts with them. They loved it."
- Jan, Human Services Consultant
"I run a lot of groups and this was a good fit for anger management and DBT. Between the worksheet, the audio, and decorating the rocks, we had a fun day in all of the groups. Plus it covered specific goals like understanding and using mindfulness. It's a tool they literally took with them."
-Timothy, Community Social Worker
