How Can Breathing Help Kids

Mindful breathing is a great way for kids to help manage their emotions and stay focused. By taking deep breaths, it can help children slow down and notice their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental way.

This helps them to be aware of their environment and how they are feeling. Additionally, mindful breathing can help children to relax and release stress, which can be beneficial for both their physical and mental health. My Book of Breaths is a easy way to practice breathing with kids.

How to Take a Pizza Breath

Pizza Breathing can help the tension in your body slowly melt away like mozzarella cheese:

  1. Ask you kids to start by imagining a delicious, warm slice of pizza in front of them. Then to notice its colour, texture, and smell. Then they should take a deep breath in while counting to five, and feeling the pizza’s warmth.
  2. Next, ask them to slowly exhale while counting to five. As they exhale, they can imagine the warmth of the pizza slowly spreading throughout their bodies.
  3. Continue this cycle of Pizza Breathing and imagining the warmth of the pizza for 2 – 4 more breaths. {For more ideas 18 Playful Breathing Activities for Kids}
