5 Ways to Ease Worries with Deep Breathing for Kids
When it comes to deep breathing exercises for kids, it’s important to remember these should be fun and easy to remember when things start to feel topsy-turvy.
Some brilliant benefits of deep breathing include:
- Reduced feelings of anxiety and being overwhelmed
- Lowered stress levels
- Relaxed muscles
- Increased energy levels
When introducing deep breathing exercises to kids, be sure to do so outside of an emotionally charged situation. Trying something new when our feelings aren’t in check isn’t always the best time to learn, and can actually result in even more stress. Instead, introduce breathing exercises during calm moments as a fun and relaxing family-time activity.
Use our conversation and activity guide after you listen to Delightful Deep Breathing with Nancy in the classroom or as an after-school brain break to help reinforce the benefits of deep breathing.
Giving them a chance to learn the breathing techniques ahead of time and add them to their calming toolbox will leave them better equipped to handle situations when they arise — even when you’re not around.
