Mindfulness: Belly Breathing
I am learning to: belly breathe to calm my mind.
I know I can do it when: I can concentrate on the meditation while doing my belly breathing.
Follow this link to listen to a teacher called Penny read Why Worry Wally by Rick Foster, illustrated by Jackie Case:
In the story, Wally learns how to manage his worries, think positively and have a good day.
One way to calm our worries is to practise meditation, which is a form of mindfulness.
Go to this link and choose either the Mindful Belly Breathing or Worry Spot meditation.
Note for Parents: Play one of the suggested meditations for you child/ren.
Doing the meditation with them will help improve their practice.
Ask them how it made them feel. Your child/ren might like to try it again at night time in bed or at a time when they are feeling worried.
