Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are! Did you know that stars can help you relax and focus on your breath? Yes, you read it right! Star breathing is a fantastic tool that can help our tiny humans slow down their bodies and minds.
To get started with star breathing, you can imagine an imaginary star in front of you or draw one on a piece of paper. You can also print out stars and stick them around the house to remind you to take a moment to breathe.
Next, pick a point on the star to start and trace the line using your finger. As you move to the next point, take a deep inhale and exhale. The symmetrical shape of the star means you can take the same amount of inhales and exhales, helping you slow down your breathing and calm your mind.
Remember, you can use star breathing anytime, anywhere. It's a great tool to use when you're feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. So, twinkle, twinkle, little star, let's use your shape to help us breathe and feel better!
