The Power in Me: An Empowering Guide to Using Your Breath to Focus Your Thoughts
Sometimes, we let our worries take over and our thoughts begin to spiral out of control.
Do you want to teach your child how to tame their anxious thoughts?
"You don't have to listen to your doubts any longer, their voices are strong, but YOU are much stronger!"
Empower your child with the gift of emotional regulation. The Power in Me helps children recognize when fearful thinking takes over, and provides them with strategies for calming their minds. Whimsical illustrations and lyrical rhymes guide readers through soothing and practical breathing techniques.
"As I inhale, my breath fills up my chest. I slow down my thinking and let my mind rest. When I exhale, I notice my body feels light. A power within me begins to shine bright."
Children will feel confident as they learn to manage their emotions and stress through the power of their breath.
Written by an elementary school librarian to support the emotional well-being of young readers, The Power in Me will sit comfortably on your shelf alongside other books like: A Handful of Quiet by Thich Nhat Hanh, Puppy Mind by Andrew Jordan Nance, and Breathing Makes it Better by Christopher Willard and Wendy O'Leary.
