Here we will share some excellent resources and websites to help you support and promote well-being to your child at home.
Hot Chocolate Breathing (Cocoa)
Whether you use your imagination or make a real Hot Chocolate drink, this technique is great for calming little ones down.
Blowing bubbles is great fun, and it has an added benefit too – the deep breathing required to blow bubbles can help you to relax and feel calm.
‘Bubble breathing’ can even be done without the bubbles, any time you want to feel calm. Simply take a deep breath in through your nose, then breathe out slowly through your mouth with your lips small, as if you were going to blow a bubble.
