breathing on purpose: a cooling out breath
breathing with a pinwheel
We learn that focusing on a long out-breath can help us feel more relaxed and calm.
We blow on a pinwheel to notice that different ways of breathing—quick, slow, deep, and shallow—affect how our minds and bodies feel.
We shake a glitter ball or snow globe to help us understand the connection between what happens in our minds and what happens in our bodies.
peace like a river
We imagine biting into a lemon to help us understand the connection between what’s happening in our minds and what’s happening in our bodies.
A fun and lively folk song taught to me by Tom Nolan from the Crossroads School and the Council in the Schools program.
