Starting Young – Teaching Children to Breathe.

One of the key messages in The Wave Riders is to learn to use our deep and slow breathing to bring in our parasympathetic nervous system which counteracts the stress response. Teaching this to adults after years of stress is great and even better is to teach it to children and allow them to grow up with this technique naturally – so I, with my daughter contributing wrote Teach Me to Breathe a beautifully illustrated book that teaches whole families while reading to the youngest members about the importance of slowing down to breathe. The book is really fun – producing laughter in children another way to distress the children and the book raises money for children’s charities – check it out at http://www.teachmetobreathe.com
