Its important to take some time for yourself. It can be difficult to find time for relaxing or to afford yoga classes or going to get a massage. One simple and easy way to relax is thinking about your breathing. Your breathing is always with you and something you can take time to focus on. The Ohio State’s Center for Integrative Health and Wellness offers free mp3s which are short and you can listen to at any time.
Try listening to Dr. Kemper’s explanation of being aware of your breathing (first link) and Dr. Thornton’s 10 minute exercise (second link).
Try it for yourself, talk to your youth about focusing on their breathing, download the mp3 or a relaxation app and remind each other to take time for relaxation.
