Strategy: Deep Focused Breathing

This practice can reduce agitation, increase focus, and help us manage stress. Deep breathing can be helpful in the moment, when faced with a chaotic or challenging experience. But daily practice with deep, focused breathing can also prepare us ahead of time to respond constructively and with intentionality to chaos, stress, or anxiety.

Responsible decision making is the ability to make choices that affect you positively in your physical, intellectual, social, and emotional bodies. Responsible decisions are based on social morals, ethics, and safety. Leading students through the decision-making process with intention helps build capacity in their ability to make choices that best serve them and others. In doing so, we also support the student to responce (pause, evaluate consequences, and make a constructive decision that considers all parties involved) rather than react.
