I hope you were able to take good care of yourself this past weekend. It finally feels like summer’s around the corner, and for those of us working in schools, or with school-age children, we’re ALMOST there! 😀
I don’t know about you, but it feels to me like everyone’s ready for a rest. To lie in the grass and just stare at the clouds, or maybe float up toward them in a bright, beautiful hot air balloon…
Here’s a dreamy new song for you and your children –”Up in the Air,” from my newest album, Peaceful Like a Panda Volume 1. I wrote it to go with my quick and fun mindfulness exercise, Hot Air Balloon:
Let’s go on a hot-air balloon ride!
You can take your balloon anywhere you want.
Take quick, short breaths in through your nose: sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff.
As you breathe in, lift your arms out to the sides and up toward the sky.
You’re filling up your balloon with air so it can fly.
Breathe out slowly. Bring your arms back down.
Do it again!
Take short, quick breaths in through your nose: sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff.
Lift your arms out and up.
Breathe out. Bring your arms back down.
Do it again, as many times as you want.
It’s time for an adventure!
I hope you enjoy, and feel free to share! ☀️
