Emotional well-being is critical for children. Breathing Bubbles is an app that helps kids practice releasing worries and focusing on good feelings.
Select an emotion and rate how strongly you are feeling that emotion.
Choose to either release a worry or receive a joy.
When releasing a worry, type it into the bubble and watch it float away as you breathe deeply with Manny the Manatee.
When receiving a joy, type it into the bubble and watch it float toward you as you breathe deeply with Manny the Manatee.
We are not our worries and sometimes it helps to get some distance from them. Spending time thinking about the things that bring us joy shifts our mood and improves overall well-being.

More Breathing Time Is Needed
I Love the concept but more time for breathing is needed for the positive emotion.
For example, after typing in the word 'love' it could go forth and become big then go back while getting smaller. Do this about 3 to 5 times while concentrating on the word love and what that feels like.
For the negative emotion, I feel that the bubble should start out big and get smaller then start to disappear with a slow out breath and a prompt that reminds the user that they are blowing the negative emotion away.
Perhaps the Manatee could also do something with the negative emotion bubble like hide it in the sand or take it and swim away etc.
I also think it would work well if the negative blowout was first and then the positive breathing is second.
Great practice breathing app
This could be a very useful supplement to therapy since it helps kids identify thoughts and feelings along with a simple rating tool. I would like to see a log that stores the information so kids can later review thoughts in therapy or with a trusted adult.
Give it to God in the bubble
Great app to let my daughter see me use when I'm worried.
