Infographics explaining how to breath in a mindful way and why. Perfect to do with your family, in the classroom with students…
The breath is always here.
We never learned to breathe.
We can change it voluntarily:
– slower or faster, deeper or more shallow.
It changes depending soon our emotions:
– it’s faster when we’re angry,
– it’s slower when we’re calm and when we sleep.
Observing our breath mindfully can help us calm down because it happens in the present moment, it’s neutral, and it’s always here with us.
Anchor points: Like the anchor of a boat that helps the boat stay at bay, we can use our breath as an anchor.
Our anchor points are places where we can notice our breath, like our belly or our chest.
Place your hand on your belly and/or your chest and notice what happens when you breathe. How do you feel?
