Frequently Asked Questions
Use your BE Buddy® as a tool to learn how to calm your body and settle your mind through belly breathing, yoga, mindfulness, visualizations, positive thinking, and more! Building these practices into your life will help you manage stress and anxiety and create a healthy, happy relationship with yourself and the world around you.
Breathing is a SUPERPOWER! Low and slow diaphragmatic breathing is the fastest way to calm the mind and body. The BE Buddy® is a tangible tool to help you practice belly breathing every day and prevent poor (stress-inducing) breathing habits.
Everyone can benefit from these practices because we all have stress in our lives, and our bodies are not born knowing how to deal with stress. Learning and practicing these mind/body strategies will produce healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Developing a healthy stress response will trickle into your life in a positive & healthy way. Whether young or old, integrating these practices into your daily life will improve overall well being.
Anytime you need a buddy to help you breathe, focus, calm down, find comfort, relax, or have a companion nearby. Bedtime is a great time to create a self-care routine!
The digital age has brought us some fantastic conveniences, but with those, new challenges have appeared. Anxiety is the number one mental health problem facing children and adolescents today, but it is also the most treatable. Kids need more downtime but are often too over-scheduled to take that time on their own. Carving out time to implement mind/body practices will help prepare children with the tools to manage mental, emotional, and physical health in a fast-paced world.
We live in a fast-paced, media-driven world that is drastically different from just 20 years ago. Kids are faced with competition daily- academics, sports, performances, social media status- children have little time to be. In addition to the many physical benefits, yoga is a safe & playful way to explore boundaries, take risks, cultivate awareness, and experience how it feels to be calm and content in the present moment. In other words, yoga can help your body stay loose and relaxed when things heat up!
The BE Buddy® is intended for children ages three years of age and up.
