- Let's watch the Move This World video and practice Heart to Heart. Let's hold our hands over our hearts and breathe in 1 - 2 - 3 - 4, and out 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 like Elliot and Kyra, our Move This World teachers show us.
- Can you feel how your heartbeat and breath is slowing down as we breathe?
- We can practice Heart to Heart with Move This World when we want to calm down our minds and bodies.
Calm - not feeling angry, nervous, or any other strong emotions Breathe - to take air into and out of the lungs
