Today I am excited to team up with the lovely Leonie MacDonald of Relax Kids Canberra to bring you part four of the Managing Big Emotions printable poster series (you can find poster one here, poster two here and poster three here).
When we are stressed or upset nature’s ‘fight or flight’ response takes over, increasing our heart rate, making our breathing fast and shallow, and sending blood from our brain out to our limbs ready to escape or challenge the perceived threat or danger. When stressed, children may experience an additional layer of fear or distress as they feel out of control and overwhelmed, not understanding what is happening to them or why. During take 5 breathing, children concentrate on taking five slow breaths in through their nose and out through their mouths.
Start at the bottom of your thumb and slide your finger up your thumb, pause at the top, and then slide your finger down the other side. Trace an outline of their hand on a piece of card and they can trace their finger along the outline. An alternative that involves no touching is to stretch their fingers out like candles on a cake and slowly blow each candle out and tuck the finger into the palm. The best time to practise Take 5 Breathing, or any calm down method, is when everyone is happy and no one feels stressed. While Take 5 Breathing addresses the stress response, our children need to know that their big feelings are important and we do want to hear what is going on for them. About Leonie: Leonie MacDonald is a qualified primary teacher, a Relax Kids coach and mother of two boys aged 9 and 6. While mothering a sensitive, easily over stimulated and overwhelmed toddler, Leonie realised that the same relaxation and meditation techniques she had learnt in pregnancy could help children to cope with stress and unwind.
Now Leonie runs her own Relax Kids classes in Canberra, providing children with the opportunity to learn and benefit from yoga-based stretches, peer and self-massage, breathing techniques, positive self-talk, mindfulness and meditation in a positive, creative and fun environment. Christie Burnett is an early childhood teacher, presenter, writer and the editor of Childhood 101. I hadn’t thought to practice calming techniques BEFORE anyone becomes upset, but it makes so much sense!
Using the usual sensor we see in most wearables, the Sona tracks the wearer's heart rate and monitors their activity.


The nervous system is what controls things like breathing and heart rate, and HRV, which is basically measuring the time difference between heartbeats, can be used to determine a person's stress levels and how well they can recover from activities.
When Sona detects a user is stressed, the accompanying smartphone app, Resonance, will make breathing exercise and meditation suggestions to help them calm down. The Sona is available for pre-order starting today from Caeden's website for $129, however it's not expected to begin shipping until March. Leonie is sharing a simple breathing technique (and tips for introducing the breathing exercise) that can help children (and adults) learn to manage their big emotions and calm down.
While stress hormones are flooding our bodies and we are gripped by this programmed response it is very hard to slow down, become calm, express our feelings or think rationally about what is happening to us and how we are responding. As adults, we are more aware of our feelings and of the physiological changes that come with these, but even we may have a hard time managing our own behaviour. It brings the body back into balance, slowing and deepening the breath and slowing down the heart rate, while harnessing the need to move with an action that requires focus and provides sensory feedback to our brains.
Children find it hard to learn or use these techniques when they are already overwhelmed by big feelings (so do adults!) and it is important that we don’t force, push or demand that children use a calm down method.
There is a difference clamping up and shutting our feelings away and calming down so that we can talk about our feelings and express them in a safe way.
So she began to create her own simple bedtime meditations and massage to help her children fall asleep. Leonie also sells relaxation and meditation products for children, books for families and pregnancy and birth products including her book “Birth Journeys – positive birth stories to encourage and inspire”. More importantly, she is a Mum who believes wholeheartedly in the value of children learning through play, the importance of quality early education, and the togetherness of family. If you are new here, you might like to subscribe to the RSS feed or receive updates direct to your email. We have students role play and practice what to do in difficult situations such as bullying, it only makes sense to have them practice personal emotional skills, as well. It features some of the same technology one would expect in the sea of smartwatches already available, but instead of focusing on presenting the time and notifications, or tracking fitness stats, the Sona's goal is to help wearers manage stress and improve both mind and body wellness.


Rather than counting steps, the bracelet monitors heart rate variability (HRV), which is used to collect information about the cardiovascular and nervous systems. The app is compatible with Apple's HealthKit on iOS, and will show users their stress levels over time, as well as compare how breathing exercises help them remain calm. Our thought processes and self-control are actually hindered by our biological stress response.
Best of all, Take 5 Breathing is simple, enjoyable, free, and you can use it anywhere, anytime. Pretend the pointer finger of your other hand is a pencil and imagine you are going to trace around the outline of your hand and fingers.
If children feel angry, hurt or worried, their feelings will probably still be there once they have calmed down.
Leonie loves cooking, growing her own food with occasional success, knitting, craft, making gifts, reading and meditation. During this time Leonie discovered Relax Kids products and began to use these to bring calm into her home. The wearable is for both men and women, and along with ditching a screen, takes on a simple, fashionable appearance with leather and metal. Keep going until you have finished tracing your fingers and you have taken five slow breaths. Letting a poster or picture act as a reminder rather than verbally telling our children what to do when they are feeling overcome with emotion and stress can be more effective. When printing, select “Fit to printable area” (or similar) to ensure the page fits with your printer type and local paper size (these have been created at A4 size). Massage and meditation helped Leonie to gently wean both her children and continues to help them to relax and unwind.
