Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. This is because when you breath deeply it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax.
In class we do lots of deep breathing exercises, one of our favourites is to place a teddy or soft toy on our tummies and to breath in through our nose and out through our mouths to rock them to sleep! We also love blowing bubbles and catching them!
Here are some other deep breathing ideas to try at home for when you are feeling anxious or stressed out. We all have those moments and sometimes its good to just sit back and breathe!
