Students at Easton Middle School recently learned about the benefits of using deep breathing as a coping skill. They learned and discussed how being intentional about your breathing allows you to more easily control your emotions in high stress situations. When sharing about his response to anger, 6th grader Antonio said, “I try to breathe and take deep breaths but it’s hard to remember when I’m mad”. Students then practiced this new skill by controlling their breathing while paint blowing with straws in order to create abstract art.
