Breathing

How it Works

Provide students with the following instructions:

  • Place one hand on your abdomen right beneath your rib cage.
  • Inhale slowly through your nose, drawing a deep breath into your lungs. Your chest should move only slightly, while your stomach rises, pushing your hand up.
  • As you exhale, just let yourself go and imagine your entire body becoming loose and limp. It should take you twice as long to exhale as it does to inhale.
  • Practice three times per day for two to three minutes.
