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
✪ In a Calm Corner or Zen Den
✪ As part of story time or craft with a related theme
✪ Include in a topic about nature
✪ Counselling office or classroom decor
