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.
