Breathe With Me.


Hello everyone,

Miss Farrah here and I am so excited to have had the opportunity to make these deep breathing videos this summer, and even happier to be able to share them with everyone. This summer was such a great summer filled with many new opportunities for me. With that being said I was sad to see summer break come to an end. As summer comes to an end and kids head back to school, I wanted to share all my deep breathing exercises with everyone. Some children will be super excited to return to school, but others may be feeling anxious. New routine, possibly a new building, and new people are all factors to consider. Now is a great time to start practicing these six deep breathing exercises to help your children when returning back to school.


Remember parents, caregivers, and educators you may also be feeling anxious, and it never hurts to practice these deep breathing exercises with your children. I can honestly tell you that I tackled some anxious feelings heading back to work a few weeks ago due to a lot of changes happening. Shoulder roll and color breathing has been my two favorite exercises to help me decrease my nervousness. A coworker had to take a very important test over the summer and shared how she used some of the deep breathing exercises from my previous videos. She shared how much it helped her in this very stressful situation. Why am I telling you this? I want you to now there is no age limit to learning these deep breathing exercise because they can help you no matter how old you are. Sure, I gear them toward a younger audience, but they can be used by all even the big kids. With that being said here is the summer deep breathing series try them out and see which one will work for you and your child.
