We all have a superpower within us – the incredible ability to use our breath to energize us when we’re feeling tired, settle us down when we’re feeling overwhelmed, and help us focus when we get distracted. With a little awareness and practice, we can often change the way we feel simply by changing how we are breathing.
To help our kids harness this power we have to do more than tell them to “take a deep breath”. In Thank You Breath, you’ll find these very tools so kids (and their grown-ups!) can learn how to use breathing to find peace and power, even when BIG emotions take over. Complete with how-tos, breathing meditations, and tips for caregivers, this sweet and compassionate book helps us all use our breath as a life-long practice.
