Today in school we focused on our mindful listening and breathing. To start we recapped what we already knew about the parts of the brain: the hippocampus, prefrontal cortex and the amygdala.
Then the children all had a go at practicing the breathing exercise. They then drew a situation where they could use the mindful breathing to help them be calm and focus.
If you want to practice this at home, don’t forget to breathe through your nose, like you’re smelling a flower, and breathe out of your mouth like you’re blowing out a candle.
