Straw Breathing For Children– Bee Breathing
Benefit: A 2020 study found that breathing exercises as part of a mindfulness practice, “taught the students to take a moment to stop and breathe. This reduced impulsiveness and allowed them to make better decisions.”
Technique: Bee Breathing.
Uses: To help children slow down and focus better.
Step 1) Place straw between closed flat lips.
Step 2) Inhale deeply through the nose.
Step 3) Gently exhale through the straw while making a deep buzzing sound by humming the letter z.
Step 4) Repeat this breathing cycle until calm.
TIP: Humming takes advantage of the vibrational energy of “Om”.
