Have you ever felt worried? What does it mean? How does my body felt differently when it is worried? Do adults worry too? How can I overcome this feeling? The breathing technique the author highlight in this book is brilliant, fun and relatable to many kids , “Breathe in slowly through your nose like you’re smelling cookies.
