Does your brain ever sometimes feel like a tornado is in there? Sometimes it’s hard for us to control our feelings, or focus on a task, or to even relax and unwind. Sometimes when this happens we can get cranky. Guess what?! It’s not just you who has those feelings. A lot of kids feel this way sometimes; and even grown ups too. Do you have something special you do when you get those feelings? Well sometimes one of the easiest things you can do is something you do everyday….breathe. If you practice breathing to slow down that brain tornado you are practicing becoming Mindful. That means you are aware that something is going on in your body or that you may be losing control and you know how to start to help yourself try to control it.
