Oh those Kids...

I learned all about diaphragmatic breathing yesterday at my conference (and no, I'm not the worst psychologist in the world, I already knew how to do it, but it was a nice review).

We even practiced it.

Homegirl informed us that when we use this with our clients, we should ask them to "smell the roses, and blow it out like a candle" or to let them brainstorm their own analogy.

I spent the next three hours laughing on the inside.

If I had my kids brainstorm, I could almost guarantee that they would come up with something along the lines of...

"smell the glue, and blow out that fire we started in the first grade bathroom (true story)."

wow! as i read your post, i practiced breathing myself :) i feel relaxed.

Stephanie said...

I did it while I was reading.

I was stressed out by having to remember how to breathe that way.

Is that normal? I don't take instructions very well...

Ashley said...

No.. it's normal.

I teach people how to do this, and I still breath from my shoulders when stressed.
