Mental Health Moments

Feel like you just need a moment?

Here's a great strategy shared by our School Psychologist, Katie Hoellwarth.


High Five Breathing


Start with your thumb; as you trace up your thumb with the pointer from your other hand, breathe in. When you get to the tip of your thumb, hold the breath, then trace back down your thumb and breath out. Continue the process with each finger, breathing in as you trace up, hold at the tip, and breathe out as you trace down.
