From #1 Best-Selling Mindfulness Author and Teacher Chris Bergstrom

Honestly, mindful breathing ( the old way ) can feel like a chore, but it should not be made one for kids.

When you start out you want it to be fun and easy.

Practicing with my son we figured out that… mindful breathing is supposed to be playful, easy and memorable for kids!

So, we started trying and inventing playful mindful breathing activities.

It was a lot of fun and we even came up with a few of our own unique ways to do “super kid-friendly” mindful breathing.

We figured out

visual,

imaginative

and tactile ways

for kids to practice.

And that made all the difference.

Figuring this out and seeing how others were frustrated we decided to do something about it and help others.

So, together with my five-year old son we created a set of breathing boards for you so that you too can make mindful breathing easy.

This was important for us because…

my son Anton has used mindful breathing to:

\

Defeat anxiety

\

Deal with pain

\

Calm down

\

Beat fear

\

Focus on a difficult task

\

And fall asleep when it was tough to do

He has guided other kids and even adults through mindful breathing when they needed it.

And it’s not just my son,

anyone can do mindful breathing.

Even children who don’t like to “sit like a pretzel and meditate” can do mindful breathing.

That is why mindful breathing is our

go-to-activity when we need

( or want )

to feel and perform better.

Now, even if I can’t promise exact outcomes and results… ( that would not be fair nor legal )

Studies have found that mindful breathing can reduce anxiety, promote self-regulation and positive thinking.

One study showed that daily mindful breathing was effective in reducing test anxiety and increased positive automatic thoughts in University students in just one week. (1)

Another study showed that mindful breathing training can improve inhibitory control and response monitoring. (2)

By learning to focus on your own breathing first, you can learn to focus, calm down and handle difficult emotions, thoughts and situations.

I think it makes sense, when you’re able to improve focus and feel better, you can improve many things.

Things like:

\

Test taking

\

Public speaking

\

Sports

\

Arts

Pretty much anything gets easier when you’re able to focus and feel better.

With love,

Chris Bergstrom

How does mindful breathing practice work?

You pay attention to your breath—how it feels in your body to breathe.

This focuses your mind, and your mind gets to rest.

Mindful breathing is paying attention to your body to give your mind something to focus on.

When you focus on your breath, your mind has a chance to rest from all the thoughts that occupy it—be it worries about the future or negative experiences from the past.

By learning to focus on your own breathing first, you can learn to focus, calm down and even handle difficult emotions, thoughts and situations.

Mindful breathing practice can lead to improved concentration and calmness

Using breathing boards helps children to visually understand how they can use their breathing for focus and to calm their bodies.

Ultimately, children can learn to use mindful breathing as a tool to focus and calm down at will, contributing to their overall well-being

How do breathing boards work?

Breathing boards can be used by

parents,

counselors,

social workers,

therapists,

special education teachers

and classroom teachers

as a part of their daily routine, classroom management and/or social-emotional curriculum.

To practice have students trace their finger around the shapes or lines of each board, breathing in and out as they go.

After you’re done ask the children how it felt and if they feel any different afterwards.

One to two minutes of practice is enough, but if the children enjoy the activity then you can let them continue.

After some time your children may want to use the boards on their own when they feel upset.

In the supplied colored versions of the boards blue stands for breathing in and orange for breathing out.

This way children will easily recognize when to breathe in and out. You can print colored versions or black and white versions so that the children can color all the details for extra fun.

Breathing boards can be printed and placed on a student’s binder, on a desk, in a calm down area, or anywhere else where students might want to focus on their breathing to focus and calm down.

What can children learn with mindful breathing?
\

Paying attention to your breath can be calming.

\

Focusing is a skill you can train yourself to do.

\

You can have the power to focus on what you want to focus on… and perform better.

\

Focusing on your breath can help you to manage difficult thoughts and emotions.

What if you’d known this as a child?


Imagine that!
