Overview:

This simple mindfulness activity can help reset students’ brains (and yours!) when things get chaotic during the school day. Shifting your focus away from anxious thoughts to non-threatening things in your immediate surroundings can help your body stop producing stress hormones. This exercise was inspired by the 5-4-3-2-1 technique, developed by a therapist and former pilot to help people conquer a fear of flying.
