Helpful Self Soothe Gifs

I first came across these Gifs on Healing Schemas. Originally shared via http://dead-rainbow.tumblr.com/post/108825682249/anxiety-gif-master-post

They have helped me to focus when practising mindful breathing and to refocus on the present. When I am out and about away from being able to watch restful everyday activities such as making tea or coffee they are great as gifs on mobiles. Try some out here or use the link where you will find so many more that are helpful. These worked for me:


Breathe in and out in time to the shapes.


Focus on the movement of the brush on the page.


Whether watching a moving image or focusing on the action of making comforting drinks, a great starter self soothe activity.


Let your eyes focus on the movement of the steam upwards.
