Now THAT'S comfort food....

If you're starting to feel anxious and you've got ten seconds to spare, try naming as many ice cream flavours as you can.

This month's issue of Prevention magazine says that this simple task, uses a technique known as 'grounding', which can help bring your brain and body back to the present.

Psychologist Vaile Wright says that it's a "distraction technique" and can free you from "any overwhelming feelings and unhealthy thoughts spinning in your head".

Interestingly, naming ice cream flavours instead of another list of items adds a level of comfort and nostalgia that other topics can't reach, researchers say.
