Don't Forget to Breathe

Told to me during Lamaze class, and in fact, several of the breaths described come from that very class - such as "blowing the candles out"!  Breathing well is applicable to all of life's stressors.

Don’t forget to breathe, don’t forget to breathe

Don’t forget to – breathe

You will be amazed at the things a good breath can achieve!

Don’t forget to sigh, don’t forget to sigh

Don’t forget to – sigh

Don’t pass it by, sigh a good sigh, give it a try.

You can take a cleansing breath

Or a breath of fire

You can huff you can puff, but whatever you do, respire!


Don’t forget to blow, don’t forget to blow

Don’t forget to --- blow

Though troubles come and go, you can blow

You can take it slow

Just let the air come in, let the air go out,

Let the air come – in

Once you begin it’s easy to do it again.

You can blow the candles out

Or blow the clouds about

Blow like the northern wind

Get a good dose of oxygen!


You can have a slow intake

Just give yourself a break!

Let the wind fill your sails

Good breathing never fails!


Don’t forget to breathe, don’t forget to breathe

Don’t forget to – breathe!

Gotta get enough in, keep up the huff puffin’

Keep up the ration of oxygenation

Keep the air a goin’, keep it blowin’

And you’ll find relief!
