What’s the secret? Why is deep breathing so important for our minds and bodies, and what’s the best way to teach breathing exercises to kids?
Shallow breathing (in the chest area) does not have the same benefits. Have your child place a stuffed animal on their belly and take it for a “ride” as they slowly breathe in and out.
Remember, children are sponges and are always watching you. Monkey see, monkey do. The more you breathe and put this into practice, the more likely your kids will too.
