Breathe In Breathe Out

Published by KidLinks on: Jan 15, 2017 — Music Therapy

Breathe In Breathe Out was highly influenced by a special little guy in my life who needed extra help with anger management due to sensory integration issues. His child psychologist used a cognitive-behavioral approach and taught “tools” to help control emotions. I decided to create a song that captured his world as I understood it, normalized his strong emotions, and gave him a catchy tune to remember his “tools”. I think we can all identify with frustrations and sometimes even anger that rears up when we are overwhelmed, tired, or in a situation that is out of our control. I hope this song helps lock in some ways to calm down - after all, isn’t it time to have some fun?
