Kindergarteners Talk About Mindfulness in “Just Breathe” Short Film (mindful)

In the four-minute film, young children talk about coping with emotions and using meditation and breathing techniques.

Filmmakers Julie Bayer Salzman and Josh Salzman created “Just Breathe” with their son, classmates, and family members one Saturday afternoon.

“The film is entirely unscripted,” says Julie. “What the kids say is based purely on their own neuro-scientific understanding of difficult emotions, and how they cope through breathing and meditation.

“They, in turn, are teaching us all.”
