As babies we breathe well. Why then do children stop breathing well so soon into their school lives? Why are we stressing them out so young? Mindfulness programmes are being introduced into schools to help. But why do we take their innate mindfulness away in the first place?
The video 'Just Breathe' below beautifully shows the power of breathing well and its impact on our childrens mental health and wellbeing.
Inside Out is a wonderful project in the UK that aims to help children learn better by making them happier. And key to that is being mindful. Of themselves, others, the world around them and inside them. You can see a short film of their Magical Days Out below.
By helping our children to breathe themselves better we will save millions of pounds in future health costs and help them realise their full potential. And who wouldn't want that?
