Mental health exercises to help you cope with a moment of uncertainty

Uroskie said most of her support group classes are through Zoom now. People are learning these grounding exercises virtually and implementing them in their daily lives. “Breathing in four seconds through your nose, holding it for four seconds, and then breathing out through your mouth,” said Uroskie.  “5,4,3,2,1 grounding technique. Five things you see, you would say them out loud. Four things you feel. Three things you hear, two things you smell. One thing you taste,” said Uroskie. 

“We are reaching to more people but unfortunately it does mean more people are in need, so we’re seeing a lot… a lot of people are frustrated with what’s going on,” said Uroskie. Susannah Uroskie volunteers with the National Alliance on Mental illness Coastal Virginia. Uroskie is in charge of conducting youth programs for the group.
