I loved that by thinking of each other and helping each other, they were in turn also helping themselves.
Just as they come to realise their feelings and need for each other a turn of events threatens to change things forever. I became completely invested in them being at least friends still by the end of the book, if not more. Aug 06, Erin Quinn rated it really liked it. But then the two of them break the rules, and something terrible happens, and Jamie and David have to figure out how to find their way back to each other.
Nov 06, Rachel Reeves rated it it was amazing Shelves: Another great book from a wonderful author. I have enjoyed all of McGovern's books I have read and she is such a delightful person as well I've moderated a panel she was on at a book festival in the past.
JUST BREATHE CHORDS (ver 2) by Pearl Jam @ tiowheagastreci.ml
This is a beautifully written book. McGovern really has a gift for giving a respectful and realistic look at a variety of health conditions young people face. She writes characters living with conditions that we don't always see a lot of and allows not only young people like them to see themselves in stories but also allows young people to better understand their peers living with these conditions. She also does this in a way that feels different from the typical "sick lit" genre with the stories being a bit lighter and more hopeful, while still portraying the realities of the conditions.
I highly recommend this book and others from this author. Oct 04, caitlin rated it liked it. Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss. Sep 10, Brianna Carrasco added it Shelves: arcs. I really tried because some aspects were really interesting to me. But I don't think it would be worth it to continue. Oct 08, Aaron Dobson rated it it was amazing. Beautifully written story!

Mindfulness meditation on breath, perhaps the most well-known type, involves sitting quietly, resting or closing your eyes and bringing your attention to your breath. When your attention drifts away, which it is likely to do, simply usher your attention back to your breath without judgment.

You don't need years of meditative practice to benefit from this technique, nor do your children. There's no doubt, however, that sitting still for any length of time can be difficult for some kids. For this reason, a movement-based meditation, such as yoga, may serve as a good introduction.
Actions and Detail Panel
Meditation is used to rest the mind, body and spirit. This, in turn, has many mental, physical, and spiritual benefits. Mindfulness meditation, specifically, is gaining a foothold in disease prevention and treatment. A number of studies in school settings also show improved attention and behavior. Some research has shown benefits for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD , anxiety, depression, school performance, sleep, behavior problems, and eating disorders.
For example, a trial of low-income, minority urban middle-schoolers using school-based mindfulness instruction led to improved psychological functioning and lower levels of posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD symptoms. There are also physical benefits as it calms the nervous system and decreases stress hormones. Studies have shown benefits for gastrointestinal symptoms, obesity, headaches, high blood pressure, pain sensitivity, and immune function.
For example, a trial looking at the effect of mindful breathing meditation at a summer camp of teens at risk for cardiovascular disease found that breathing awareness produced a reduction in blood pressure and heart rate. The length of time and frequency of meditating can vary for different people and different practices.
Teens and adults: minutes per day or more based on preference. Try incorporating deep breathing into your children's daily bedtime routine—it can help them wind down for the night and make meditation easier to do when other situations arise. Remind gradeschoolers and teens to take a few deep breaths before answering a difficult question at school, taking a test, or before an athletic performance.
As young children learn to manage strong emotions, deep breathing can be part of the process—especially before and after time outs.
Together we can change the landscape
While meditation can be done on your own, it can also be done with the help of a trained professional. Some counselors and individuals with training in meditation can help others learn and practice meditation.
Meditation is not currently covered by most insurance plans unless given by a licensed counselor. It is always best to check with your individual plan.

Flexible medical spending programs may count meditation training as a medical expense. There are multiple ways to learn different practices of meditation. There are books, audio recordings, videos, online training, websites, and even smartphone apps to help children meditate.
Choose and practice the one that works the best for you and your child, and enjoy a calmer body, mind and spirit. Since meditation practices are generally safe and have many possible benefits, they can be used without much risk. As with any lifestyle change, however, it is best to discuss it with your child's pediatrician before adding meditative practices to your child's wellness routine. Helping Children Handle Stress.
