• To learn and practice breathing techniques
  • To reconnect with the environment and be “present” in the moment as a way to manage stress

We want to start today’s activity with a simple grounding exercise to be mindful of our surroundings and remember we are safe.

Start by taking three deep breaths and silently name 3 things you:

  • Hear
  • See
  • Feel
  • Touch
  • Taste

Take 3 breaths in between naming items for each sense. For example, name three things you hear, then three breaths, then name three things you see.

Share as a group or in partners when you think practicing the breathing technique would or would not help you
