Yoga helps people of all ages focus, relax and be mentally alert. Gratitude engenders a positive outlook. Take 5 or 10 minutes out of your day to do this yoga-inspired exercise with your students.
Bring yourself back into your body and connect with your breath and your heart by sitting with your hands over the center of the chest, with closed eyes, and breathing through the nose. Let go of everything else. Feel your heart beating and appreciate the work it does for you every moment. Thank your heart, and feel it thank you back!
Being able to center yourself when you are under stress or in a conflict is a very important tool to avoid escalating a conflict further, and to free you to use skills for successfully resolving it.
