The Mind Yeti is back in the counselor’s guidance lesson this week. The friendly cartoon character teaches the students to settle their minds and calm their emotions by learning to control their breath. The students are practicing their deep breathing in a fun way by imagining they are smelling a bowl of soup and cooling it off by slowly exhaling through their mouth. This is another coping skill the students can add to their toolbox for times when they need help calming down.
