While most of us take breathing for granted, experts stress that proper breathing — which is both a science and an art — is something we must learn. Better breathing keeps us healthy; breathing can calm us; breathing can give us more energy; and the deeper we breath, the better we feel.
To help children become more aware of their breathing — and the benefits deep breathing offers — Sharon Penchina, C.Ht. and Dr. Stuart Hoffman have written a new book,I Take a DEEEP Breath!. This is the second book in the I AM a Lovable ME! self-empowerment series.
Caron B. Goode, Ed.D., NCC, DAPA, co-director of the International Breath Institute and author of Full Wave Breathing for Children says, “This cheerful bright book is the perfect starting place for children to learn breath education — a first step to good health! I Take a DEEEP Breath! teaches breathing awareness to children from toddlerhood through elementary school. Hats off to the authors for bringing a critical health solution to families early!”
There are mouth breaths, nose breaths, down to your toes breaths, the authors explain with the help of the “LOVABLE ME” bug. There are deep breaths, snooze breaths, breathe however you choose breaths. There are in breaths, out breaths, make you want to shout breaths. Being aware of our breathing is the first step to better breathing.
I Take a DEEEP Breath! — along with I AM a Lovable ME!, the first book in the
I AM a Lovable Me! self-empowerment series — employs a direct yet whimsical approach to learning while encouraging children to empower themselves. Every parent, friend and relative who wish to give youngsters a solid foundation to build upon will enjoy sharing these books and ideas with the children in their lives.
