  • "Sipping Rainbow" (Single-Pointed Focus)

    "Single-pointed Focus is a practice that strengthens our ability to sustain our attention on one thing, rather than allowing it to be drawn in a million directions. This is an amazing tool to help our students learn the art of "focus." -Allison Morgan, Author of Zensantional Kids: Educate 2B!

      

    Directions: Sit in a comfy chair, relax, and press play. Close your eyes or pick a spot on the ceiling to focus on. Bring your attention to your breathing as you listen to the video. Don't forget to USE YOUR IMAGINATION!


  • "Forest Adventure" (Guided Imagery)

    "Guided Imagery is a technique that focuses and directs the imagination. It utilizes the natural mind-body connection to relax the body, release stress, and relieve discomfort." -Allison Morgan, Author of Zensantional Kids: Educate 2B!

    Eye Cupping- "Muscles surrounding the eyes often become overstressed and a student's ability to coordinate ocular-motor structures become hindered...The light pressure placed around the bones surrounding the eyes triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, eliciting a relaxation response." - Educate 2B!

     

    What to do:

    • Place your palms together and rub them briskly back and forth to generate some heat.
    • Once you feel the warmth in your hands, gently place them over your eyes so that your thumbs, fingertips, and heel of your hands are resting on your face and there is space between your palm and your eyes.
    • Relax here and notice the warmth from your hands relaxing the muscles around your eyes.
    • Just like a warm bath relaxes the large muscles of your body, imagine that the warmth from your hands is relieving the muscles around your eyes that work so hard all day.
    • Take a moment to thank your eyes for all they do for you each day.
