He aha ai? – Why we love it
Following on from tummy breathing, this ‘experiment’ helps each student discover how many mindful breaths they take per minute.
Once they know this number, they will be able to do a minute of mindful breathing anytime, anywhere, without having to rely on a clock or watch.
We love mindful breathing because it draws our attention to the present, calming both the body and mind. It can even help us to turn anxiety and anger into feelings of relaxation and focus.
