Looking for some deep breathing exercises to teach the kids? Try this holly themed technique and grab a copy of the free printable poster too!

I'm not one of those people who gets majorly stressed out at Christmas, mostly because we keep things pretty low key around here. And because I always aim to finish all my Christmas shopping early and online. If I can avoid the stores, I'm good.

However, anxious kids like my son can be thrown off by the changes in routines and all the overwhelming sensory aspects that Christmas brings. So I'm making sure he has as many tools as possible to help him cope and self-regulate.

This free printable Christmas themed deep breathing exercise is perfect for helping kids manage their anxiety during the holidays.

A Simple Breathing Exercise for Kids with a Christmas Twist

Triangle breathing is a common deep breathing technique, where you draw a triangle as your breathe.

So this Christmas holly exercise is based on that. It's such a great mindfulness strategy to teach your kids! Or maybe you need to use this technique yourself to make it through the holidays.

About the Free Printable Holly Deep Breathing Exercise Poster

This one page printable offers a simple deep breathing technique using a Christmas holly theme. I highly recommend laminating the poster for durability.

As for how to do the actual deep breathing technique, simply trace the arrows around the holly and follow the instructions. Breathe in. Hold. Breathe out. Repeat.
