Just Breathe - A Response to Anger and Frustration©
Rabbi David Baum
Parashat Hukkat, June 28, 2014, Rosh Hodesh Tammuz 5774
Is a monster that is mad
It’s a monster who is angry
It’s a monster who feels bad.
When your monster wants to throw things
And your monster wants to shout
There’s a way to calm your monster and chill your inner monster out.”
And that mad monster will make you make a mad monster face.
He makes you want to push he makes you want to shove
There’s a way to calm that monster bring out the monster love!”
Belly breathe this is how you do it.
Put your hands on your belly and you slowly breathe in.
And you start to calm down without a doubt
Feel your belly go in and out and out and in
Now Elmo feels like himself again.”
