Self-care techniques — connecting with our natural healing potential
In partnership with a Lorain County Middle School results showed:
19% decrease in disciplinary action
10% increase in kids never feeling angry
5.3% never feeling sad
Increase in attendance
BAAM technique was taught and practiced to over 200 students, for 10 minutes per session, over an 8 week period. Focus areas for evaluation included: disciplinary action, emotional wellbeing, and attendance.
When I did the breathing it helped me focus on what we are learning. And when we did the movement it helped me stay still in my chair.
After each session, I felt much calmer. The aromatherapy helped to relax me. The breathing helped to slow my mind down. Also the acupressure kind of made me freeze and just melt away. And the movement helped me to just calm down.
When I use these techniques I often find that they relieve stress, nervousness, and headaches. I also find that it is easier to get work done and do a better job when I use these techniques.
