Let Music Lead the Way
Playing calm music or nature sounds has a positive effect on the brain and body, can lower blood pressure, and reduce cortisol, a hormone linked to stress. Take a break and listen to cello master Yo-Yo Ma playing Bach, Pacabel etc.
Consider having classical music or nature sounds playing in the room as students enter to create a calming atmosphere or take a few minutes for yourself in the middle of the day with your iPod to find your inner beat.
