4 Square Breathing

Square breathing is my favorite technique to teach students in grades 2-5. It helps them be more mindful and less anxious. I use it myself in stressful situations. It can be done by simply counting in your head, you can physically raise your hand and arm as your count, or you can trace a square as you count and breathe. I teach this in class lessons on self-regulation and in emotion regulation groups.
