Mindful breathing helps to regulate the nervous system. It switches off the stress response and lets the brain know that we are not in danger. It is a powerful strategy for helping kids calm down and manage big feelings.
In fact, mindful breathing for kids is a great place to start your child’s mindfulness journey. Children as young as 2-3 can master mindful breathing techniques with a little practice and guidance. Each of these activities is fun, quick and effective. They provide children with different visual cues and other sensory feedback to help them focus, understand and master the breathing techniques.
