Mindfulness Begins with Deep Belly Button Breathing
Research proves that shallow, irregular breathing brings in 1-2 pints of oxygen as fuel for the mind/body/emotions. Deep belly button breathing brings in 6-7 pints of oxygen as high octane fuel. Insufficient oxygen intake causes negative, unclear thoughts, tendency to be irritated easily, lack of good communication, compassion and more. When kids learn proper deep breathing, their mindfulness becomes more acute leading to greater self-control and self-care, self-worth and self-confidence.
