Today, we will look specifically at square breathing, otherwise known as box breathing.
Box breathing is a type of rhythmic breathing where you follow a pattern to help you stay focused. It’s a paced breathing exercise that you can do anywhere!
Think waiting at a traffic light, while in the shower, or even at work!
It consists of 4-second rotations of breathing in, holding your breath, breathing out, holding your breath, and repeating. Box breathing is a surprisingly simple way for your child to calm down and feel great.
