Now, imagine that you're a kid with limited skills to handle these demands.
That is where Mallika Chopra's Just Breathe comes in.
After reading this on NetGalley (thank you!), I was convinced that my tutoring students and parents would benefit from deep breathing, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and movement exercises.
I was not disappointed. The target audience is tweens, but people from age 5 through 95 can develop techniques to increase focus, calmness, and, yes, energy.
Two of my more boisterous students have already benefitted from imagining a place where they feel safe and happy, coupled with deep breathing. In just ten minutes, they went from sleepy and unfocused to feeling more calm and centered. Parents and grandparents give these activities their endorsement as well.
With ample white space and simple, serene graphics, this book beckons the reader with chapter headings such as Breathe, Move, Be Silent, Notice, Ask Questions, and Create.
The reader feels invited rather than instructed and this makes a difference to kids who feel stressed from academic expectations, rushed schedules, the pressure to win, or any of the family tensions that we all experience.
(Thank you to NetGalley for an electronic Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review.)
