Calming Exercises for Kids: Breathing and Stretching

by Andrea Greengard

The aim of this video is to help little people manage the big emotions they experience. It includes some simple breathing exercises and stretches to help kids release tension and calm down when they are feeling stressed, frustrated or anxious. I suggest that you practice the exercises in this video with your child when they are feeling calm, engaged and ready to learn.

When they are familiar with the video you can remind them of their breathing exercises/stretches at times they are experiencing stress and help them learn to calm themselves down. When our little monkey has his mouth closed, he is breathing in. When his mouth is open, he is breathing out. During stretches, encourage your child to breath deeply and slowly.
