I have to use grounding techniques quite often- I find I start dropping things or becoming clumsy when I'm too 'in my head'... thinking too much and worrying about things.

One thing I've found helpful is to actually touch the ground... just simply bend over and put both hands solidly on the floor- feel it's support, and even lean on it a bit.
Stand up, look around you and really look at your surroundings.... take several deep calming breaths.
Then, (and this is something I learned at a lecture about a month ago) visualise a jar full of water with mud in it- all shaken up. Picture the mud slowly starting to settle while you continue taking slow quiet breaths- while the water in the jar gradually becomes clear.
The man giving the lecture called it the 'Letting Your Mud Settle' meditation... it really does help!
I know it sounds a bit New-Age-ish, but to be honest I find some of these techniques work well for me.
