Gift Breaths (aka Square Breaths) are a lovely way to practice being in the present, relaxing our bodies and minds and getting the opportunity to take a moment and practice gratitude for all the gifts we already have.

Shape breathing activities are lots of fun and a great visual cue for taking a breath. This breathing exercise can be used with both younger and older children.

Gift Breaths affirmation: I am a precious gift

Why Teach and Practice Mindful Breathing:

When you practice mindful breathing you are using your breath and senses to develop your attention and focus skills, which can have lots of benefits at home and in the classroom. It is also a great coping skill for learning to manage our emotions and helps to elicit the relaxation response and a feeling of calm.

Ways to Use:

✪ At home with your children
